    Canonet 17 QL GIII : worth it ?

    Hello all,

    I've been offered a Canonet 17 for €50, with no AE (seems to be due to a broken thread) and, more important for me, what appears like fungi on the inner side of the front lens...

    Does this seem like a good offer for the price, or sould I look for something else ?

    Additional question : how hard is it to remove the front cell of the lens ?

    I would pass. You can get a Konica S2 and may other good RF cameras pretty darn cheap these days.

    I love my canonet, but avoid that one like the plague! Look for another one, there are plenty out there. I bought mine for just a few rolls of film! = $35

    I got mine for $25 on the auction site and it's in nice shape. No case, but, hey.
