I just got an XH-A1 a couple weeks ago. The only real flaw I see in the A1 is that the viewfinder is pretty weak. Other than that, there just isn't much about the A1 that isn't well above par or just downright excellent.

The viewfinder can be improved a lot by ading the large rubber eyecup from the Sony Z1. It fits over the existing XH-A1 eyepiece and really improves visibility on bright sunny days, especially useful if you wear spectacles.

The difficulty I have is that the viewfinder resolution seems to low to be able to focus accurately with it. With many scenes you can often hit a pretty wide range of focal lengths without seeing any difference in the image displayed on the viewfinder.
