    Is this unit still for sale? I am heading to the World cup at the end of
    this week, and despreately need a model to fill the void of the one that
    didn't arrive via eBay (Ggggrrrrrr......)

    I'd need it shipped via Express post to Adelaide.


    Cheers,

    The XA is a great little camera, but hardly worth taking to the world cup.
    Maybe if you only want a few crowd shots I guess.

    Well, it seems that FIFA has clamped down on "professional" SLR users
    and telephoto lenses. Essentially, it'll be up to the discretion of the
    guard at the gate on the day - but apparently any "pro-looking" kit will
    be refusedsntry. With my luck I'll get some simpleton, who thinks any
    SLR is 'pro equipment', and won't let me through the gate with it. So,
    the XA would be a good compromise, I think.

    More importantly, I think it'll be a great camera to carry around the
    streets, with which I'll gain little attention.

    Well, I can't quite read between your lines - I'm guessing you still
    have it for sale? Doesn't matter either way - I've jumped on eBay in
    the meantime, to ensure I get one in time.

    Thanks,
    Andre
