I think the main problem would be the loss of contrast due to the huge image circle/total amount of light entering the sensor-box. And that the lens would be huge compared to the camera.

Always. Proper photo snobs have the body address the lens.

Well, with the 6x7 to k-mount converter and the k-mount to Q-mount convert it would be possible to connect them. I'll give it a look see tonight. The main problem is that - for me - my shortest 6x7 lens is a 75mm lens which times 4.7 = 352mm. That's a bit long for day use.

They're good for 6x7. They're not the right tool for the Q7 job.

It's certainly worth taking a picture of a 6x7 lens mounted on a Q7 just for the what-the-heck factor.

The M* 800/6.7 has been adapted to the Q -- nice easily hand-holdable combination. Can't find the link...

Ah, here it is:
