The Canonet 28 35mm rangefinder camera, introduced in 1971 was a cheaper version of the famous Canonet QL17. The lens is a fixed 40mm f/2.8 Canon lens. It has fully programmed auto exposure with shutter speeds from 1/30 to 1/600 (shown by the meter's needle in the viewfinder), and manual control of f-stops for flash (f2.8-f16). The film speed range for auto exposure is from 25 to 400 ASA. It uses a Copal leaf shutter and has a coupled rangefinder. It was made in Taiwan.

This Canonet was marketed from 1971 to 1976, and was one of the last heavyweight rangefinder cameras. By the late '70s, camera construction had begun a rapid change from metals to plastics. The rangefinder Canonet 28 had a brief moment of Hollywood stardom, used by the title character of the 1998 John Waters film Pecker.

  • Lens: 1:2.8/40mm (5 elements in 4 groups)
  • Shutter: programmed shutter with speed/aperture combination 1/30 sec./1:2.8 to 1/620 sec./1:14.5
