Chronology of cameras Canon 

Traduction d'Eric

After careful consideration, I concluded that it was the 1969 version of this nice little rangefinder (the second chronologically). Early versions of Canonet are bigger and can be identified by the position of the reference mark of the ring distance which is significantly deviated from the rangefinder window and the third version shows a clear "G-III" in the name.

Technically, it's all in the name, or nearly 17 per lense open to 1:1.7 (40 mm focal length) and QL for Quick Loading device that is fast loading, which announced in 1969 the automatic loading of plastic compacts of the 90'.
