The Canonet QL range was introduced by Canon in March 1965, as a development of the Canonet. They are 35mm rangefinder cameras with shutter priority CdS-meter controlled auto exposure and manual override. Each is fitted with the Canon QL quick film loading system.
The QL17 had a 45mm f1.7 lens, the QL19 an f1.9, and the QL25 an f2.5, set in Copal SV shutters. The 17 and 19 have speeds from 1/4-1/500s, and the 25 has 1/15-1/500; there was also a more basic QL 19E model, from November 1965 with a 1/15-1/500s Seiko shutter, recognisable by the self-timer lever being mounted beside the lens barrel, rather than on the barrel itself on the Copal models. The QL 17 has a battery tester. Later models of the 17 have a 40mm lens.
