Forgive the idiotic question, but I have to ask. I just received a QL17 through an ebay transaction. The camera appears in very nice, very clean condition, but opening the back I see there is no film pressure plate, just four brass studs. Did this camera have one? I'm inclined to keep this camera and pick up one for parts, if needs be. I'm actually quite surprised at the bulk of this thing, it's almost as big as an FTb, and almost as heavy. I also just received a later QL17 that is not a GIII, and it is much smaller. I had no idea there was such a difference! Also, got any idea what I can use for batteries for these cameras? I'm not at all inclined to use zinc air batteries; I don't foresee using the Canonets often, and I wouldn't be at all happy about having to change batteries every time I want to use them.
