Awesome A+ Rangefinder!

  • Summary: Read a lot about this class of rangefinders before buying. Far exceeded my expectations. This camera holds its own with the best of them. Very pleased with the ease of operation. Film loading was a breeze. The camera fits nicely in your hand. Rangefinder viewer is clear and readings are easy. Easy to focus. Overall A+ camera with awesome optics! Built like a Sherman tank!

The best rangefinder for your money

  • Summary: Basically this camera has it all for the experience or novice user. If your in the market for a great rangefinder camera, look no further. I have been using this model for 41 years and had many of this model. They are a joy to rebuild since many are available and parts can be found everyday here on Ebay. I have used others that cost tons of money more and received the same results with the fast 1.7 lens.

Great value for money, great lens, great build quality... Just Great!!!

  • Summary: One of the best compact rangefinders money can buy (and not a lot of money is needed). I have the rarer black version, and wanted to buy the silver one to have the pair. Either one is the same, and they're great. They feel really good in the hand, small and heavy but not excessively, they feel sturdy, rugged and well built. If you can, go for the MIJ (made in Japan) versions as they're better built with less plastic, but the Taiwanese models are great too.

recommend for newbies in rangefinder film cameras

  • Summary: Use the camera about one month,shot 4 rolls - the first impression was good, used to use the focusing lever, it was pretty unusual for me, but since started the second roll - it was just right for me, like I've used it all of my life. Regarding the battery - I use ZincAir A675, that's a bit smaller diameter, but my conacts hold it properly, so I don't need any additional rings by now.

Best Rangefinder I have ever used, brings back high school days when it was

garryphotoman20d, Ebay
10 November 2011
  • Summary: It is a wonderful 35mm rangefinder camera, loaded with auto or manual exposure. Meter reading is on the money, best 35mm range finder I have ever used, Enjoy the sharp photos I get with the 40mm lens. I don't like where the self timer lever is but I have been able to work around it. If I am lazy I set it to full auto, if I get creative I can set both the shutter and aperture manually.

Canon Canonet QL17 GIII - Great and affordable compact 35mm rangefinder.

avinivini, Ebay
3 May 2011
  • Summary: My favorite rangefinder so far!!! A great versatile camera for street photography and low light (IMO)... Smaller than my Yashica Electro 35 GSN. It has full manual control, fast lens (f1.7). No wonder why they call it Poor man's Leica! I highly recommend.
