Adapted Adapted lenses, any make, for any camera

I haven't seen a general thread for any adapted lens. Here are a couple of things shot with the Sony a7ii using an old Zuiko 75-150 f4 (one of my favorite zooms for decades), with which the river stone with fossilized ferns was shot, and the Konica Hexanon 40mm f1.8, which has become the standard lens for the Sony, which I got mostly to use with my old 35mm glass.
It's great to see some of these classic lenses being used on digital cameras. I confess my parameters for contrast, and sharpening are different for a lens for 1952 than they are for a lens make last year., but the old Summicron, for instance, resolves a lot of detail, even if contrast, local contrast in particular, is less. I would have tweaked those chemically in the old days, so I find no problem tweaking them with a contrast mask in Photoshop, which I prefer to turning up the contrast too high in camera. Thanks for all the fine images demonstrating the strengths of these older pieces of glass.
