I used to shoot with the XE-1, the european equivalent to the XE-7, a lot in my youth, because a friend of mine had one (I had the XG-1 at that time). I always loved it. Very nice cam! What I missed was a light meter that worked in manual mode, but that was rare even in later models and could only be found in a practical mode in the OM-2. In Germany the chrome version is found more often. Maybe there were regional preferences. If you want a chrome XE-1 you might to search german ebay.
