As you can tell, both of these cameras offer different megapixel count and different sensor measurements. The X2D with its larger sensor will make getting shallow depth of field less difficult and the Hasselblad X2D will provide you with greater detail with its extra 75 Megapixels. Greater resolution will also let you crop images a little more aggressively. The more modern X2D is going to have an advantage with regard to sensor tech.
