Canon Canonet QL17 GIII 35mm Film Rangefinder Camera - Fully Functional with New Light Seals, Batteries
Here we have a beautiful condition Canon Canonet GIII QL17 with new light seals installed and a fresh battery. This camera is fully functional and ready to provide another lifetime of fantastic photos.
This camera is in excellent cosmetic and perfect mechanical condition. The aperture blades are free of corrosion, damage, or oil. The glass elements are free of fungus, balsam separation, haze, and scratches. The light meter works as it should, the film advance lever is solid, the quick load functionality works perfectly, as does the self-timer.
The focus ring and aperture rings actuate exactly as they should, and the viewfinder and rangefinder are bright and contrasty. Neither finder shows any haze or fungus.
This camera is being sold at a discount because there is a very minor ding in the filter threads.
The Canonet G-III is the third generation of Canonet, following the original Canonet and the New Canonet. It is a super compact, coupled-rangefinder with a silent and accurate leaf-shutter. It features shutter-priority automatic exposure mode as well as full manual shooting mode in which aperture and shutter speed are selected.
The G-III features a 40 mm f/1.7 lens with six elements in four groups. This fast apertured lens makes the camera exceptional for street photography, low light and available light shooting. It is incredibly quiet, extremely compact, and highly capable. This combination of traits often leads the Canonet to be called "the poor man's Leica."
The camera will be shipped immediately and packaged securely to ensure safe delivery.
