Introduced in 1969 and produced until 1972.
This is the black version of the same camera I reviewed before of the chrome QL17. Other than looking fantastic in black (and yes I have make no secret of the fact that I think most cameras look better in black), this is functionally the same camera as the chrome QL17 and from what I can tell mostly the same as the QL17 GIII.
The QL17/GIII have a big fan base and I can understand why. The more of the competitors that I have used, the more I understand the love for the QL17. I agree this is a great camera. The QL17/GIII and the Minolta Hi-Matic 7sII are both contenders for my top spot. I have zero reservation suggesting this camera to anyone of any skill level. And more good news is the non-GIII are cheaper. Only issue is the PX625 battery.
