    A few months ago I picked up a box full of old rangefinders. In the box were four Canonet QL GIII cameras. Now I already have one and I've decided to keep an extra but that leaves me with three that I was originally going to sell on Ebay. I've gone through each camera, replaced the light seals, cleaned the hell out of them and tested each one with film.

    After thinking about it for a while though I decided I would proposition a camera swap on here. If you have something you don't want or need and would like to trade for a nice, clean, usable Canonet GIII let me know. I'm not saying I'll trade you mine for your just like new 110 Kodak but if you have something that is interesting, I'd much rather trade my cameras to good homes and get new toys in exchange.

    By the way, I'm in Indiana so if you are looking for shipping costs that should get you ballpark.

    Thanks!

    If you eventually decide to sell one, let me know. My wife's first camera was a Canonet and she lost it in the moving process several years ago. I have been thinking about getting one for her to get her re-inspired in photography, but the prices seem to be a bit high.

    I would consider anything in the way of another Japanese rangefinders except Yashicas, I already have three. TLRs are always fun, medium format folders, anything older that would be similar in value or difficult to find. I would also consider Russian rangefinders. I'm not really interested in P&S or SLRs but if you have something old or interesting I might be interested. I don't have much Nikon gear, prefering Canon.

    If you have any Mamiya 645 lenses I'd really be interested! Or canon lenses, or... that's part of the reason I put these up, hit me with something interesting.
