Tilt setup with Pentacon Six @30mm experience wanted

I am looking for experience using 30mm fisheye or similar in a tilt setup with pentaconsix-to-K mount adapter.

Specific info I am looking for is out-of-focus part of the photo to amplify the effect of tilt. I have few cases:
1. Large blueprint on a tilt drawing table with the half-finish subject in blurred background.
2. Party table and blurred people.

If you have one of these lenses, please help me to find out:

A. How far distance to subject and which f-stop to get the photo sharp all the way out to infinity. I've seen part of the hyperfocal scale on the lens in, but not the closer range.

B. How blurred, how far background objects I should have. That too depends on the distance to subject under (A). Some photo of the bokeh would be great.

C. Distortion of the lenses, your recommendation of which one to use with the tilt setup. Is there other lenses with pentaconsix mount?

D. Corner sharpness to use with a shift adapter, if the lens is suitable for shift purpose, depends on the distortion. I have K28shift, so this is not critical. As I know, there is no adapter combine both tilt and shift in one.

Thank you everyone.

A. Can someone post the photos of full scale of focus/hyperfocal of the lens(es)?
B. Any photo in close range?
