For Minolta lenses (and cameras):
The Rokkor Files

For Olympus:
biofos.com: Using OM legacy lenses on Olympus E-P1.
There within are other links to other interesting information

For Nikon:
Nikon Nikkor Lenses
I didn't really look at this one, and I don't have any Nikon lenses, but I thought this was an interesting take on old lenses:
Nikon Cheapskate Lenses

Tamron:
Tamron - Camera-wiki.org - The free camera encyclopedia
Tamron Adaptall-2 lenses | Adaptall-2.com
Catalog of Tamron Adaptall-2 lenses
Catalog of Tamron Adapt-A-Matic lenses
And this Tamron Adaptall Lens Compendium:
"Can I use an Adaptall-2 mount to attach a mid-1970s Adaptall ("without-2") lens to my camera?

Yes, Adaptall-2 mount adapters are backward compatible and will fit Adaptall lenses also. Indeed, the newer version is considered to be more solid and reliable."​

50mm:
Konica Hexanon AR 50mm f1.4 – Legacy 50mm. Which one is the best? Part 6 | Viktor's photo blog
If you click through "next story" or "previous story" links to other "legacy" 50mm lenses it gets fairly interesting

Above link has reviews of old lenses on mirrorless bodies. Been awhile since I browsed, but I recall the reviews being more 'lens chart' focused than just a bunch of sample photos. So a good resource in to balance out the sample threads here.

If you are looking for something in particular, Tamarkin Camera just posted the catalog to their next auction.

It includes a copy of this:

Yes, and
A thread here https://www.mu-43.com/threads/minolta-sr-mount-lens-info-rokkor-md-mc-celtic.94886/

and Minolta SLR Lenses
Has some good info too (in English)

And Minolta SR, MC, MD has lots of detailed info on some lenses, including weights of different revisions (Swiss German).

Minolta reportedly had a site with all the manuals... It is long gone but maybe there's a copy on archive.Org. I will try to check next time I see the original URL.

Also, there's a flickr page and a Google Drive doc with some info on compatibility with focal reducers for some lenses. See Lens Turbo II Minolta MD > m43
