Recently did some table top shots with Dynax 5 + Tamron 90/2.8 Macro of my Rokkor collection for the FilmChallenge and to check the setup and lighting, did also some quick digital snaps with the a7.

Beautiful collection! I would like to have that 20mm lens. Is that a 85/2.0 in the back?

The 24/2.8 is one of my favourite lenses (though I own the MC version).

Wonderful image of a large collection of beautiful glass.
For a successful technology reality has to take precedence over public relations, as nature cannot be fooled.

Nice collection and nice pic!

I suppose you use them on the A7 series? How happy are you with the MD lenses, in general? How do they compare to MAF; though I am aware that's way too generic a question in terms of comparing a whole bunch of lenses with another bunch of lenses.

I'd LOVE to be able to have such a MF collection with an A7. Perhaps one day...

The 20 and especially the 24 really interest me. The 28/2 to some degree as well I suppose and why not the macro. A lovely set of lenses to be sure and very nicely shot!
I detest bugs, especially spiders.

Funky funky bokeh, unlike the FE 28/2, still easier to focus for still intricate things or night scenes though and sometimes you want funky bokeh.

Micho: Nice cohesive shot.
