Hi Bob

I use an A16 with my XA. I think that it is worth finding; at 100asa the
A11 max on auto is 8ft, whereas the A16 max is 13ft. At 400asa, the A11 max
is 16ft, whereas the A16 is 26ft.

The dial/wheel on the front of the A16 is the tightening device for
mounting to the XA, instead of the screw wheel on the end of the A11.
