Together with the Contax T, the Olympus XA, was a 35 mm camera and one of the smallest rangefinder cameras ever made. It was designed by Yoshihisa Maitani and featured a fast 35mm f/2.8 lens, and aperture priority metering. The camera was capable of taking extremely high quality photographs. A great pocketably slim size, loved by amateurs, and those who demanded great results: automatic enough to provide sharp, well exposed photos. A great camera from the Olympus tradition of compactness combined with technical virtuosity.
