I don't think so: register distance from 645 is bigger so it should be possible to put those on a k mount and still keep infinity focus ability
K mount: 45.46mm
Pentax 645: 70.87 mm
Pentax 6x7:84.95 mm

The 90 mm is a macro lens, the tilt allows you to get more DOF which would be pretty handy in a lot of situations. Schneider do a whole range of lenses for use with medium format digital backs, but I don't think any of these are retrofocus designs which would be needed on an SLR.

Hmmmm... too bad they didn't think about architecture photography and came out with a 10mm or something...
On APS-C? That would be a massive, $15,000+ lens.

Well, Canon's TS-E 17mm F4L would be decent on APS-C for architecture (~26mm equiv), and that's *only* $2200-ish.

Prices seem a lot resonable compared to Hartblei Superrotator 120mm F4 Makro
How much is that going for now? I noticed they don't have a price list anymore, but the last I remember, the 120/4 was only 2400 or thereabouts. The most expensive one was actually the 40mm, which went for 4300. But note that with medium format wideangle lenses, the difference in price between a 50mm and 40mm are huge. If Schneider made the widest one 40mm instead of 50mm, then the price would probably be in the 4000+ range, too.
