The very handsome and solid Canon G-III is a compact range finder camera with an impressive build quality. The letter G stood for “Grade Up” This meant it was superior to the lesser quality rangefinders being sold at the time to amateur photographers. It sold over a Million units between 1972 and 1982. The “QL” stood for it’s quick load of film feature, an important consideration for 35mm roll film cameras.
