Pentax SMC 67 35mm F4.5 Fish-eye Lens on 645D, 645Z

Has anybody tried this lens PENTAX SMC 67 35mm F4.5 Fish-eye Lens on the 645D or 645Z?
Any idea how it would perform?
Would it still be a fish-eye on the 645 sensor?

This post contains a comparison to the 645 35mm and my thoughts haven't changed:

The 35 fisheye had edge of field softness on the 67 no matter which stop was used. With a smaller sensor, not a problem. The angle of view with the D/Z is probably going to be 100 degrees. The barrel distortion will be much less using just the central part of the image. The built in filters for this lens seemed to be intended for Black and White shooting. Any polarization needs to be done at the rear with just the glass from a polarizing filter (which I have done).
