Thanks for the review. Answer lots of questions. But one thing is not right:

My experience, and from what I have read on the subject in general, is that it is very difficult to make a medium format shift lens that will provide the coverage and hold resolution, especially for a 39 megapixel sensor.
The pixel pitch on the 645D is not that small and the required image circle not that large. There is a MFD camera that will allow Canon shift lenses to be used with a MFDB and the images are fine. And there obviously Schneider and Rodenstock lenses with large enough image circles. The problem is the super-rotator optics can't do it.

In my opinion, resolution falloff would be acceptable in the image corners and even sides, when the lens is really used as it is made for and the focussed zone would be OK.
But i still dont see any visible T/S effect on the pict. samples given in this blog...
