Tilt shift on 645z?

I know there's a Pentax 75mm f4.5 SMC Shift 6X7 medium format film lens (http://bit.ly/1vYaPiT), and a 6X7 to K mount adapter (K-3, etc.) (http://bhpho.to/1tSN6UB), it's expensive as hell though.

Found this on Amazon (http://amzn.to/13UT5P3), which is a Pentax 6X7 to 6X45 adapter, though I would suggest emailing the company just to double check if it's compatible with the 645Z (which I'm sure it is, but still never hurts to ask).

Yes, They are made by a company in Munich called Zoerk. I visited there last week and got to put the different products they make on my 645Z. There is a shift adaptor which uses P67 lenses, which looks pretty great with the 45mm P67 lens. The tilt lenses and or tilt shift lenses are all custom pieces using Rodenstock enlarging lenses. Some of the products reach infinity focus and some are more for close up work. The focal lengths are 105mm and 80mm. Mr. Zoerk mentioned to me that he can also modify the Schneider 90mm tilt shift lens so that if will work on Pentax 645Z. The Schneider is currently only made for cameras with shorter flange distance than the Z.
Below is a very quick pano shot from the Zoerk shop window using the shift adaptor with P67 45MM lens. The full size file is about 14000 pixels across.

Given that Pentax is serious about the 645 product line, I would believe that they are going to have to address the specialty lenses - the shift and tilt/shift directly some time. Both shift and tilt/shift are very useful in landscape - and that is where they are pushing the 645 line, not so much in the studio. Having said all of that, I know it is useful to depend on your older lenses, but they are going to need to pump their game up in the optical arena. There really is no third party (like Sigma) that they can rely on to help with the lens line to support the bodies, as with the K bodies. With a real lack of older wide angle lenses and with the 25 going for $5K, that just means that getting specialty lenses will be a very expensive matter.

Do the lenses for the Zoerk MFS have to be modified for infinity focus on the P645 mount? The website offers the 105/4 by default for the medium format version & I was wondering about the possibility of using both shorter (80) or longer (120/5.6, 135 or 150 Schneider).

The special short mount 105mm is for infinity focus on the Pentax 67/6x7 series bodies. I've just purchased a 80mm Companon-S to try on this and am looking for a 105/135mm, but have to wait for the proper mount to arrive for the MFS (I bought it with a Nikon F mount). I purchased a Pentx 6x7 mount for it and will adapt down to Pentax 645.

The Zoerk/Zork USA folks say that other lenses (i.e. 135mm, 150mm) will focus to infinity on the 645 bodies.
