Toronto. The Canon P shown here with a Canon f/1.2 lens will appear in our fall auction (Nov 19, 2017). If you don’t have one in your collection, or would like the super fast f/1.2 lens now is your chance! The model P cameras are well built cameras with a steel foil focal plane shutter. This model was only made for a few years – from 1958 to 1961. It was intended to be the less expensive version of Canon at the time.
This example has the hard to find f/1.2 50mm lens with its very shallow depth of focus and depth of field used wide open.
This was one of the last rangefinder models made by Canon and is a clean example meant for both collectors and film users.
