FA 35mm 3.5 on 645D?

I was about ready to pull the trigger on a FA35mm 3.5 lens until I saw the sample image on the russian website:
Pentax 645D "" - managger - - iXBT

Any comments?
I think it looks pretty bad, where as all the longer lenses did much better.
If I read the post correctly theses are unsharpened jpegs straight off the 645D.
I wish I had access to some DNG's

I don't see a problem with using the FA35 on the 645D, and that shot just looks like it's overexposed (although a DNG would be nice).

It's rumored that a 25mm is coming for the 645D, which will be equivalent in FOV to the FA 35mm on film: Pentax 645 25mm F4 Coming - Pentax News & Rumors -
