Hi Tom.

Which version are yours Miranda 50 mm lenses?

Can you send pics of them?

Thanks


Hi Papasito,
I have both the Auto Miranda E and EC.
I can find no real difference between them.
On the left is the Auto Miranda E mounted on my Fuji with home made adapter - you can see the sloppy epoxy where I glued the parts together Smile
It consists of an M39 to FX adapter plus a T-mount plus a possible bellows ring for Miranda that I found in a box of bits.
The registration distance turns out to be spot on, but it took a lot of trial and error to get it right.

Thank you Tom.

Very nice camera and lenses.

The EC coating seems to be more Strong than the plane Auto Miranda's.

IT reminds me the coating of the normals mamiya sx lenses.

I like very much the rendering of both Mirandas you have.

Are those lenses the same as the Auto Miranda w/o the "EC" letters?

There is quite a range of 50mm lenses for Miranda besides the E and EC
A 5cm f1.9 Miranda Soligor was made by Kowa and is quite different.
There are others.

I can't beleave how sharp this cheap lens is!!!!

The front element has fungus and some cleaning marks. But has very high resolving power.

Nice!!!!!
