    Is the aspect ratio of this camera 16:9 like Leica or regular 4:3? Are there any non-Leica rangefinders with the 16:9 aspect ratio?

    The Canon Canonet QL17 G-III uses 35mm film to take 24x36mm negatives so the aspect ratio is more like 3:2.

    I am not aware of film rangefinders (Leica or not for that matter) having aspect ratios of 16:9 or 4:3.

    Are you sure you're not thinking of the compact digital Leicas?

    I did a quick search on the internet regarding the 16:9 aspect ratio. Everything regarding that ratio points to movies and video.
