    that would like to give me.

    I would like to ask you how I can use this stuff with my nex? Which of the lenses can work and with what adapter?

    Miranda was good quality for it's era....late 1960's. As far as I remember the lens fitting was pentax bayonet, ie 'PK' mount so adaptors are readily available.

    The 17mm wide-angle is a large handful being MUCH larger than the Sony 16mm The 50mm is small and neat and will be a 'short-tele' lens on NEX.

    The 'Sensorex' itself takes 35mm film so can be considered totally obsolete now as the NEX will FAR outclass it in image quality.

    Can't comment on the type of adapter you need, but I'd say get one, they aren't expensive and then you just can try and see what these lenses can do. A Miranda 17mm is a lens you won't find every day, I bet it's kind of rare. If you don't want it, I'll be glad to pick it up :).
