You're right, I had the 645D in mind when writing it.

The 35mm is a wonderful lens, sharp and with very little distortion. It is about equivalent to a 20mm in 35mm format. My example is manual focus, but very easy to focus and the focus indicator is always handy. I really don't know why autofocus for the sort of use best for that lens would be any advantage. Plus its a lot more expensive. Can't speak to the 45mm.

I have 45mm already covered by the 45 6x7 and the 45-85mm SMC-A. Both of them are good, that's why I never used a 45/2.8 645. Off course, the two lenses I have don't provide f/2.8, but I am a f/8 to f/16 photographer anyway.

Advantage of the FA lens is that you get data on your film or exif on your 645D, not so with the A version.

On the 654n A lenses imprint f stop and shutter speed, but not focal length. My understanding is that the 645nii adds the focal length. Still, stop and speed is much better than most film cameras do.

to each his own,i am happy to take on landscapes with the 45mm.if i need more, i can stitch 2 or 3 together. i know most think the 45-85mm is better, but for the ease of carry i can live with the difference.

I have both the 35mm A and the 45mm A lenses. I consider them as two different purposes. I use the 45mm as my "standard" wide angle lens and the faster f2.8 helps. The 35mm I use for landscapes and creative shots when I want that super wide perspective.

The 45mm gets a bad rep for lack of corner sharpness but my example is pretty good with only minor losses at wide open. I suspect that there may be more variances in different examples of the 45mm A lens.

Yes, these replies about comparative FOV really are inviting confusion with half the crowd talking about real medium format and the others talking about the cropped digital sensor. The OP states that he is used to shooting at 15mm on this 35mm setup which is extremely wide. Even in true 645 format the 35mm lens will not give that wide of a FOV.
