I managed to use all 8 lenses in my Sony camera bag during our clubs location visit to East Bergolt (Dedham Vale in the UK) last week, as well as using a couple of supplementary lens (a Raynox & a crystal sphere) so here are a selection of those using adapted lenses (mainly with the IR blocking filter removed).
The Raynox shots were all with a native lens so don't belong here any more than the Samyang 14/2.8...
FWIW any lenses without the mount mentioned are in PK mount.

A Mirage 28mm/2.8 macro (using a variable ND filter for IR)
ILCE-7M2    ----    0mm    f/1.0    1/200s    ISO 640


I think this was one with the Russian '69-3' a 40mm/4 Triplet jury rigged to LM mount (again with the ND) - but it might have been the Industar as below:
ILCE-7M2    FE 28-70mm F3.5-5.6 OSS    28mm    f/5.0    1/320s    ISO 1250

The collapsing Industar 50 (LTM mount) with a crystal ball (full spectrum this time)
ILCE-7M2    ----    0mm    f/1.0    1/125s    ISO 1250


The Cosina 100mm/3.5 macro (again with the ND)
ILCE-7M2    ----    0mm    f/1.0    1/200s    ISO 640


And finally the Paragon 500mm/8 mirror lens with the IR block restored:
ILCE-7M2    ----    0mm    f/1.0    1/1250s    ISO 1250

Picked up a Tamron 135mm f2.8 (CT135) fixed M42 mount for the steep, steep price of $10. Had a spot of fungus on the inside of the rear element. Had that sorted out after a quick YouTube search and about 5 minutes of work. Parked it on a cheap helicoid adapter for macro-optional work, and took it out for a spin on my weekly CSA pickup. Here’s the OOC JPEGs.

ILCE-7RM2    ----    0mm    f/1.0    1/100s    ISO 100
ILCE-7RM2    ----    0mm    f/1.0    1/160s    ISO 100
ILCE-7RM2    ----    0mm    f/1.0    1/125s    ISO 100
ILCE-7RM2    ----    0mm    f/1.0    1/125s    ISO 100
ILCE-7RM2    ----    0mm    f/1.0    1/60s    ISO 125
ILCE-7RM2    ----    0mm    f/1.0    1/250s    ISO 100
ILCE-7RM2    ----    0mm    f/1.0    1/60s    ISO 200


Shot many of these into the sun, which yields the obvious and expected flaring, but I like the character of it. Sharpness is good, and colors render nicely. I’ll apply my standard editing baseline to these, and likely adjust contrast more on some, but I think this will be a fun addition to the bag. Soft at 2.8, but that’s a feature, not a bug for me. If I want sharp with more blown out OOF areas I can dial in the helicoid.
