Canon QL17 35mm Rangefinder Camera SR. 161555 for parts/repairs as is
The Canonet QL range was introduced by Canon in March 1965, as a development of the Canonet. They are 35mmrangefinder cameras with shutter priorityCdS-meter controlled auto exposure and manual override. Each is fitted with the Canon QL quick film loading system. The final and most refined version of the QL17 is the QL 17 GIII, discussed separately. The Canonet 28 is a related model, lacking the QL designation.
The QL17 had a 45mm f1.7 lens, the QL19 an f1.9, and the QL25 an f2.5, set in Copal SV shutters. The 17 and 19 have speeds from 1/4-1/500s, and the 25 has 1/15-1/500; there was also a more basic QL 19E model, from November 1965 with a 1/15-1/500s Seiko shutter, recognisable by the self-timer lever being mounted beside the lens barrel, rather than on the barrel itself on the Copal models. The QL 17 has a battery tester. Later models of the 17 have a 40mm lens.
