You may not be able to get precut kits for the XA, but any camera serviceman
should be able to cut & fit new foam, I've had this done on an XA and XA-2

I got one myself recently and I am very pleased with the results, nice
contrasty images and handles flare exceptionally well (once the new front
element was fitted - thanks to John H. & Camera Clinic).  Be careful about
composing the shot "in camera", images don't look good when cropped unevenly
after the event.  I was surprised how "ordinary" some shots appeared where
there weren't any obviously bent straight lines.  I'm certainly not
disappointed with my investment in the 16mm.
