[QUOTE=Jim Jones;1506394]I briefly used a Miranda in 1967. It developed a few minor problems, so I switched to Nikon. At the time Miranda offered a three-year guarantee, while top companies like Nikon and Leica relied on reputation and construction. Perhaps the burden of supporting that guarantee hastened the company's demise. The three Soligar lenses with the Miranda were sharp![/QUOTE
One of the reasons for the company's demise Jim was the name of the cameras, Miranda wasn't a sexy enough name, and the cameras didn't sell.
