You should be able to rig an adapter for a mirrorless camera with any of these old RF lenses. The basic Leica M39 LTM adapter for any mirrorless camera is a starting point for an adapter that will give you infinity.
The trouble with doing this is that the old 38mm f/2.8 lenses most of these cameras used are just too good, technically. They give excellent results, but a good sharp contrasty picture can be made with most lenses without going to the trouble. Your usual 35mm f/2.8 SLR lens of the time on a standard digital camera adapter will give an identical picture, for any reasonable purpose.
There is of course the Edmund Hilary reason for doing so, which he gave for climbing Mount Everest - "because its there".
I like Pentax DSLR's, Exaktas, M42 bodies of all kinds, strange and cheap Japanese lenses, and am dabbling in medium format/Speed Graphic work.
