Contax C/Y lenses on Z


I remember already posting such question but would like to know from those who have first hand experience about shooting Contax lenses with C/Y mount on a Z.

I own a few of these old lenses among which a 50/1.7 which is nothing stellar but then an 85/1.4, a 100/2 and a 135/2.8 which are quite interesting (have some shots taken a while ago on a Fuji X-Pro1), I wonder if they do well on a Z and if there is any photo taken I could give a look at, I love taking portraits and even tho these things are MF and as such not suiting my shooting style (if it can be called a style...) they are still worth being used.

Would be grateful to read your comments and suggestions, ideally would in the future get a Z6II
