GFX with shift adapter to Hasselblad V mount?

I’m curious if anyone has adapted a 40mm Hasselblad CFE or similar version to some brand of shift adapter on a GFX? If so, is there any barrel distortion or mustache distortion like I’ve heard the Pentax 35mm has?

I have the Fotodiox Rokr t/s adapter for the V lenses to GFX.  It's working pretty nicely. So far, I've only used it with the 150mm Sonnar but no real complaints.

I use some Hasselblad V lenses (50, 100, 180) via a Kipon shift adapter on the GFX. They will show exactly the distortion published in the data sheets. The three 40 mm versions have rather large mustache distortion. Such can be compensated using the Alpa lens correction plugin for Photoshop (but seems not to work in latest PS), and one must adjust sensor size and pixel pitch to the GFX (50 or 100) values by opening the plug-in file in a text editor.

Good on Hasselblad for having detailed, readily available datasheets!

The moustache distortion is quite pronounced in the 40mm f/4 (C, CF, CFE)
