Canon itself broke the record it set with its 4x zoom lens by developing this 5x model while making the total length of the lens 5 mm shorter. The accuracy of the CdS exposure meter, first applied in the previous model, was improved, and the design was renewed, including a white alumite finished lens barrel. This new design looked unbalanced at the beginning, but later it was recognized as an ideal new design that solidified the prestige of “Canon with zoom” by becoming a best seller.

This camera is in good condition. It has traces of use on the outside of the camera.  All the optics are in good condition, without dust, traces of shocks or fungus. The camera has been tested with film with good results. Sold with original carrying case, pistol grip, A1PX light cell battery and protective lens filter.
