I think the issue with the Otus on the GFX will be whether the image circle is big enough. It may be, but it may not be.
Back a couple years ago while researching the H-Cam Master TS adapter, IIRC, the designer indicated the Otus 55 was tried and found to have a limited image circle size. At least in respect to tilt/shift usefulness. Seems the usable image circle isn't all that much larger than that needed for 24x36mm, therefore may not work optimally on mini-MF. Some of the lenses that do work well on that adapter include the Canon 16-35/4 after removal of the rear baffle, as well as a similarly modified 11-24/4. IIRC, for their tests, the 16-35/4 was enduser modified but the 11-24 was modified by Canon.
A couple lenses I'd be curious about on mini-MF that weren't on your list, Steve, include the Leica R 80/1.4 and highly unlikely due to rarity, but potentially cool: Nikkor 300/2.
Also, back a number of years ago, a member here adapted the Canon FD 85/1.2L to Mamiya 645. Of course, infinity focus was not possible, but at nearer distances, the lens covered the 645 (film) format. I have a feeling we're going to see this lens on the Fuji a fair amount...
