Zeiss 2/28 on cropped-frame-sensor DSLR?

It is well-known that the Zeiss 2/28 has substantial field curvature, which can be used with interesting effect on full-35mm-format cameras, but is obviously not everyone's cup of tea. Well, I was wondering about using this lens on APS-C and APS-H Canon cameras. The field curvature may be in the "wrong" place for cropped-frame sensors, as it is, reportedly, with the Canon EF 20mm f/2.8 lens on APS-C, for example.

This question is prompted by the local availability of a pre-owned Zeiss 2/28 ZE lens. ("2/28" is Zeiss-speak for f/2 28mm.)

Thanks, in advance, for taking the time to read this, and reply. :)

Well, I instead bought a pre-owned Zeiss 2/135 APO ZF.2, so the urgency of learning about the 2/28 is less, as I am unlikely to be able to afford it before another buyer acts. I do, however, remain interested in the 2/28, if anyone has any thoughts to share. Thanks!

Another pre-owned 2/28 has appeared at the local camera store, so I remain interested in any comments on this lens.
