Added this Olympus XA to my rangefinder collection. It has become a cult collectable in recent years, due to the very sharp Tessar 5 element lens, but more importantly for being the smallest of its type-smaller than a pack of cigarettes. Got it to take snowshoeing and cross country skiing in my parka pocket. Eric and the boys will be up Wednesday evening and Thursday morning we leave for Copper Harbor and Ft. Wilkins State Park. Eric will be moving to California to look for work and be with his new love, so I will cherish this time together.
