Just won a Miranda 70-210mm f4.5 Macro from eBay for £6.50. Not a prime but worth a play with at that price.
I think you'll find it's a bit more complicated than that.

That takes me back. I had Miranda K-mount stuff when I first started. I'm still on K-mount DSLRs now. In fact I'll still have the film stuff and various lenses in a bag.

Well the chipped adaptor arrived from China. Cant get it to do anything more than the dumb adapter did, no focus confirm at all :(

Meanwhile a dumb adaptor for the OM-D EM10 II arrived. That works really well! In body stabilisation, focus peaking and magnification through the EVF as well. Much easier. The whole setup even looks like an analogue OM 4 for added cool.

I'd still like to get the E500 working with old lenses better though as I would be tempted to take it out where I might worry about the OM-D, 8 mega pixels is still pretty good for most things and its a nice handling body even if its old and butt ugly.

The 135 is excellent for birds in the garden. Been practising with it and a squirrel even turned up to add to the fun. When I find the USB lead that fits the camera I'll post some pics.
