Bad news on the Olympus XA front. Something’s wrong with the focus. I took it in for a repair before taking it to Ireland. Unfortunately, it’s still off. It’s a rangefinder, and it’s a little tricky, so there’s a chance it’s user error. But I doubt I could be this consistently off, in almost all of the images. The XA also has a setting that’s pretty much meant to guarantee everything will be in focus. Not for me.

I doubt I’ll take it in again. Just not sure I can justify the cost. Still, sometimes having things out of focus is nice.
