  3. Great photos. Wouldn't it be nice if there was a digital version of this classic little rangefinder? It's the only camera I have owned more than 20 years that I've never been tempted to sell or trade.
     
  4. I would love a digital version of the XA. In fact, there are a whole slew of digitals with the came cigarette pack size, but I've never seen on with a short-base rangefinder and eye-level viewfinder. All the new digitals have the viewing LCD on the back that I don't really like.
     
  5. I agree. I finally gave in and purchased the Canon S90 with it's 2.0 lens, front function ring and its high ISO capability. It seemed to be the best of what's out there. I wish it had a viewfinder, but I found the viewfinders on the G2, G6 and G9's I had pretty much worthless for accuracy. What prompted me to purchased the S90 was that I was taking so many photos with my iPhone because "it was the camera I had with me" which makes it "the best camera in the world." The S90 isn't much bigger and of course the quality is first rate for a point and shoot. Maybe someone will build a fixed-lens pocketable small rangefinder camera some day. We can only hope and wish.
