Good Morning Xander,

I bought my first 35mm SLR in the late 1960; it was a Miranda F. I currently have several others, some not completely functional. Versatility is a big plus with the Miranda, since the dual lens mount will accept numerous lenses. The best feature of the Miranda line is the placement of the shutter button; it's located where it can be squeezed rather than punched. I don't see why other manufacturers don't use that approach. While I mostly use MF and LF now and have also gone with Olympus in 35mm, I still occasionally use one of the Mirandas, especially for any 35mm copy work, since I have a very usable Miranda Macron lens.
