I have ordered an P6/K6 > E-mount adapter to use my medium format 6x6 lenses, 2,8/80mm and 5,6/250mm lenses on my A7 and A6000!The lenses are quite heavy, and comparable bulky, but having also an advantage! I am using the center of These medium format lenses only, so to speak the sweet spots! 

 

Optical may be not as crisp as 35mm glasses, but with high contrast, no distortions, no corner vignettings!

 

On my A6000, the 80mm lens is an 120mm lens with an close distance of 60cm. Not too bad für an 120mm focal length!

The top two photos are very contrasty and nice.

I've used my Mamiya 645 lenses adapted to Sony full frame and APS-C. To me, the disappointments was that you don't get a medium format look on a smaller sensor. Therefore, I don't really use them much. The 35mm lenses are smaller and often sharper on a small sensor.

Wow - my text didn't show up in my post... Trying to edit...

 

Didn't someone (More edit - Rhinocam) make a rig that positioned the sensor behind all the areas the medium format lens covers? Essentially giving you the Brenizer approach to building up a medium format image by stitching together the pieces.

Yes, the 35mm lenses are developed to be generally sharper on the 35mm format, but the medium format lenses providing all the goodies of an sweet spot, and in addition with APS-C more focal length!The missing crisp sharpness can be easyly obtained in post processing!It's not a must, but if you keeping some medium format lenses unused in your drawer, there is an clever possibility to use them now with your Sony E-Mount cameras!
