u can try those 2nd camera shops. maybe they provide such cleaning service. there's a shop at basement of Adelfi call P & G Photographic Centre, the shop cleans lens fungus so maybe they also clean cam bodies. go check them out. :)

can also try TCW (The camera workshop)... they do repairs for rangefinders, and i also saw a few XA2's there.... i think they may also have the A11 flash there too ;p

hi RudyTT, did u get it fixed?

i heard the XA is one of its kind, the first idiot cam to use a F2.8 Zuiko lens. the XA2 used the F3.5 Zuiko instead. if u can find the A16 flash, it wud be a better buy compare to A11, mainly higher flash power & faster recharge.

cheers. :)
