Anyone use any of the adapters that allow larger image circles lenses to be used as a tilt shift on smaller formats?

I happen to have old Pentacon 6 lenses sitting around, including the 50mm lens, has anyone tried adapting these to Nikon (I have a D810).  I tried the Pentacon 6 lenses on my old D7000, and they seemed at least ok, though they were quite large and wasn't something I was using actively.  Tilted and shifted on a higher resolution body may strain them even more, I imagine. 

Alternatively, I also have a Micro 4/3rds camera, and there are adapters to adapt my Nikon lenses as tilt and shift lenses.  Anyone tried that?

Kipon makes shift adapters I believe for m43.  No aperture control or anything like that.  So manual aperture lenses are probably better.  Also 2x factor so no wide shift lens...but otherwise they work pretty well.

I have an Arax branded shift (but not tilt) adapter to M42 screw-mount.
Used it with 45mm Hartblei shift lens (not good for today's standards), 80mm (pretty bad), 150mm (Hartblei-branded Kaleinar) with nice results (except too heavy and bulky setup) with A7м2 (A7r, A900).

I think it has sense only with some special lens like 180mm Sonnar, not general use.

Fotodiox recently released a range of medium format tilt/shift adapters which includes a P6 to EOS adapter.  you can then add any type of EOS to 35mm or m43

I do have that 180mm Sonnar... not sure if I should bother.  May be good to experiment.
