Theoretically 75mm would be equivalent to 300-375 depending on which Q variant you use so I would say yes. The lens is Hoya Pentax but I don't hold that against it...

You should put a picture with the lens atached
OK, here's BORG 55FL assy on BORG EOS adapter on EOS-Q adapter on Q7.

When I was taking pictures with this setup on a monopod in the zoo, one of the volunteer guides asked me what I was doing, because he has "never seen something like that, and it looks so... weird"

Do you have any further thoughts about the quality of the lens?If it is good one should be great telephoto for the Q series.

Ricoh Rikenon P 105mm 2.8 macro -- K mount on the Q

AKA as Kiron or Vivitar.
A recent purchase of what is regarded as a cult lens and is performing very well on the K01. Looking good on the Q too!!
The closeup is an uncropped image of an aphid on a rosebud stem. That was getting close to 1;1 magnification. Of course with the small Q sensor when it is enlarged to monitor size that is even more magnification than on apsc.
