Thank you all for the input.

Even though this was bough as a gift for my wife, i'm enjoying as well!

I've seen some pretty nice pictures online taken with it, the optics seem to be quite nice.

I'm just taking a first risk here wasting a roll without a proper battery and not changing the light seals, although they seemed quite ok.

Great little rangefinder overall!

It is a very decent little rangefinder. I had one for years in the back of a cupboard and was very impressed when I finally put a film through it. I even wrote a review of it for 35mmc ( https://www.35mmc.com/22/06/2021/canonet-28-review-the-modest-canon-by-bob-janes/ ).

Later on I was doing an experiment for 35mmc of sending a camera around the world - I chose an old Canonet, but the response to take part was so great that I ended up sending the Canonet 28 around as well. Because of that my Canonet 28 is somewhere in the US at present, but it has produced some interesting shots - https://www.35mmc.com/17/04/2022/the-travelling-canonet-canonet-28-roll-1/
