    I have a Canonet QL17- GIII and I like it a lot, don't use it much because I prefer my Franka Solida folder med format better, but it is a great camera

    I have a Canon VT deluxe - a QL17 GIII, Black QL17 and QL19 - The Black QL 17 is my favourite Canon Rangefinder. Although the 50 1.2 that came with the VT deluxe spends most of its life on my M3

    I have a much abused P that I bought new in the 1960s and a 7 with 50mm f/1.4 bought used in Okinawa in 1968 for $35!

    Got a IIb and IVSB. Used to have a IIIb and a 7, but these have been scrapped.

    They don't get to be used as much as my FSU rangefinders though. My IIb was last seen sporting a red lizard (snake?) trim and collapsible FED 50 mm lens.

    I also have the (apparently) ubiquitous QL17, though lately I have been neglecting it for a little Olyumpus RC35 I picked up last week.
    She: What do you do for a living?
    Me: I take pictures.
    She: Oh, you're a photographer.
    Me: No,... I'm an art thief. :)

    I also have 2 QL17 GIIIs, but I've been using my CL lately. I'll have to dust off the Canon and shoot a roll or two.

    I have this Canonet QL-17 (non G-III) wich I kind of gave up on after one roll of film through it, it later turned out to be the fault of fogged, way-out-of-date TMY I had used... Insipered by this thread I loaded it with a fresh roll of HP5+ and gave it another shot. And it`s great!

    Hi Steph; For a brief shining moment week before last I was the proud owner of a beauty QL19, bought it for $40 at a local camera shop for a canoe trip, didn't want to risk the M3....had a ball shooting away with it, lots of fish and nature shots.
    Hit a rock, over went the canoe, and down it went. Was just able to dive after it and got it....but after 10 days of drying the shutter will trip but won't adjust, and the aperture is stuck at F16 or so. Meter works though.... but according to my shop it's a nice looking paperweight now.
    Jury still out on the film, haven't picked it up yet.
    I'll probably grab another one next canoe trip (along with a new rod & reel, the river gods took those as well).
