It's a 433, not 645 (44x33mm vs 60x45mm).

Still I wouldn't complain if someone wants to buy me one :-)

Suitable for a Pentax MF camera?

645 film wasn't 60x45mm either. Depending on the exact
camera, it was typically 56x42mm (or a tad less).

Alas, today I just got the quote to repair my home's heating
system. So much for a 645D for this year.

If it was compatible, that would be the way to go for hand held use. It
would allow you to remove the mirror box to shorten the flange distance
and design wide angle lenses easier. For studio/tripod use a small HD
LCD monitor would probably work better and cost less... hmm, nope:

-less resolution and about the same price. You can actually hook up a
laptop for studio use although live view won't feed any more resolution,
you get immediate full size 'polaroids' for evaluation.
