I was raised on Mirandas, before I got into Nikon (followed by Leica M,
then Leica R's). Found the cameras to have a crude feel, but incredibly
sturdy, and the lenses were remarkably sharp for their (low) price. The
Sensorex was (I think) their last hurrah, and had some metering problems,
as I recall. Give it a roll or three - you might be pleasantly surprised.

If you don't like it, send it to me! I'll even send you the $2 you paid for
it! (And you'll have a free Bolex!)
