X/C A35 has slightly better PQ in HD as user reviews said...
Seriously, if you have money to throw away the by all means buy it (that is XA2) but when A35 is now at $240 level I think it's simply a no-brainer to go for the A35 unless you really want a backlit remote.
The major problem with the XA2 is that you probably can't find one right now for a reasonable price. Amazon rip-off Partners have 'em for $850 + $30 shipping. If you see one in a store for under $500.....grab it!
