update: Nocticron @f/1.2 versus Canon 85mm @ f/2.5

I'm not able to redo the comparisons as I've since sold my Nikon DSLR (I'm planning to be Nikonless until they launch a mirrorless full-frame camera).

However I stumbled into the following guy's comparison of the Nocticron @f/1.2 versus Canon 85mm @ f/2.5. Here again the MFT shot seems to have more in focus. What is going on?

42.5mm MFT @ f/1.2:

85mm FF @ f/2.5:
