    I think there are two versions one with f/2.8 lens and other with f/1.7 lens. The former should be cheaper. If you search B&S section you could find the canonet going for something betwenn 100 - 200 (with flash).

    You're looking at the Canonet QL19.

    hmm. thanks, but that doesn't seem to be the one

    after some searching on google images, i found a pic of my model (as the camera is not with me currently, i can't take any pics of it):

    Really hard to get GL19. This one has 45mm f/1.9 lens and as you said fairly rare. I have not see one sold in B&S recently. I guess since these were not pretty popular model and the market for fixed lens rangefinder is not very hot, you might land one for something in US$100 range. I have a canonet GL17 (with 40mm f/1.7 lens) and I paid 120 for camera and canonet flash.

    How much did you pay for the camera?

    so that's the GL19? it looks different from the website though. It was passed to me by a friend

    anyways i found another link...doesn't seem to have any extended name besides "canon canonet", sometimes with a "original" added behind.

    edit: one more link here http://www.canon.com/camera-museum/c...page=1956-1965
