Maybe the discrepancy in XA evaluations arises from the
different lenses offered in the XA family.  The XA itself
sports a 35mm/2.8 lens, which Olympus proudly brands "Zuiko,"
its own house name.  FWIW, more modern Olympus P&Ss are simply
called "Olympus" lenses.

There were also the Olympus XA2, XA3, XA4, each I believe
dispensing with the coupled rangefinder, and offering instead
a 3.5 lens.  Perhaps its the latter lens, on these lower
priced family members, that is not up to par.
