What's the chances of a wide angle Shift Lens for the 645D........

I think the chances of a shift lens from Pentax is 1%.
There are some lenses from schneider-kreuznach:

Those are great lenses, but if they don't produce a 21-28mm(in 35mm equiv angle of view) they won't capture the Architectural Market.

From all I read, the 645D should/would/could be the choice body for an Architectural Photographer.

However - Canon is going to maintain it's control of this and the Landscape market with its 24mmTS lens until something comparable comes along.

Zork adapters are great and could be used with 6x7 lenses, but still the Wide angle is going to be missing!
