Clearly, the two cameras feature different resolutions and different sensor dimensions. The X2D because of its bigger sensor is going to make getting shallower DOF easier and the Hasselblad X2D will result in extra detail utilizing its extra 80 Megapixels. Higher resolution will also help you crop photographs way more aggressively. The more recent X2D should have an edge when it comes to sensor innovation.
