Canonet QL17 GIII

The Canonet Rangefinder is next on deck for repairs, after I priced the replacements.  In excellent condition a replacement would cost more than $200, so certainly worth fixing.  I looked back to find an earlier posting from 2009, where I pondered whether or not to repair this camera.  So it has been offline for a while.

The Canonet Series were 1970’s Leica M-Series knock-offs.  This was the final high end version of the Canonet Series.  It offered Aperture Priority, Auto Exposure and Manual Exposure modes.  It is also just a fun little camera.  For some Canonet photo examples I can recommend “I Love Old Cameras”
