Medium format is known for producing some of the best image quality. Companies like Hasselblad offer some of the best cameras currently on the market. Its latest lenses for the Hasselblad X1D II are brilliant, so we decided to see how well a full frame camera system such as the Canon EOS R5 would fare against it.
In our latest video, Anete and I compared the Hasselblad XCD 80mm f/1.9 lens on the X1D II against the Canon RF 85mm f/1.2 with the EOS R5. Both of these lenses are some of the more expensive portrait lenses available from each company.
In the video, we briefly compare aspects such as handling and autofocus performance. The Canon is clearly the winner in that area, with its impressive phase detection autofocus system. What's most surprising is how well the Canon performed when it comes down to the actual image quality. As much as sharpness and details are important, Canon has done something incredibly special with how its latest camera renders color.
Hasselblad is probably one of the best companies on the market when it comes to how it renders color. This has remained a consistent feature for all of its camera systems. Canon has taken a huge leap forward with its latest camera system, however, because the image quality from the Canon EOS R5 is simply incredible.
