The Pentax HD 35mm f/3.5 AL [IF]offers a close focus capability down to 1:4 which means that for its 43.8mm X 32.8mm sensor it can capture an image field of width 175.2mm.
This scene as captured is ~380mm wide, hence the reproduction ratio is about 1:8.6 at a subject to front lens element distance of ~12 inches, ~14 inches from subject to sensor plane.
Depth of field expectations should be appropriate: in depth of field terms, a 35mm DSLSR at f/13 ~= f/10.6 for the 645Z. See Image/Sensor Size, and 645Z Focal Length and F-Stop Equivalence vs DSLR.
