Post your weirdest lens rig

Mine is as follows:

Pentax Teletakumar 400mm f5.6 M42 mount (Made year I was born!)
Pentax Mount Adapter K (M42 to K adapter)
Piece of Aluminium foil
Pentax 1.7x AF Adapter
Samsung GX10 body

M42 adapter mounted on AF adapter.
Teletakumar screwed into 1.7x AF adapter.
Alfoil shorts contacts on AF adapter between lens and adapter.
I stop down meter first in M, then change to AV or P modes to meter automatically.
I AF using AF button at 5.6, then change aperture to suit.
AF on half shutter press disabled (AF doesn't work at smaller apertures).

Results at f5.6, 1/100s SR on, used monopod, not PP'd:

Centre 100% crop:

Corner 100% crop:

Hmm, maybe I should have used a tripod.
