To my eye the Capture One versions here are definitely sharper and retain better highlight detail. Whether C1 has any inherent advantage or the differences are just down to development choices is another thing entirely.

Very odd, to my eyes it's the exact opposite. The Art 1.6 photos definitely look more detailed. This is however not surprising to me since RawTherapee has the best X-trans demosaicing I've ever seen.

Not from where I'm sitting, C1 (left), ART (R). I don't think there's a clear standout amongst the various X-Trans demosaicing options out there, they each shine in different areas, but if I had to pick one, it would be X-Transformer. If the 50 f/2 is anywhere near as sharp as it's supposed to be, I would expect better than these examples using Lightroom w/IXT.

C1 (L), ART (R)

In that particular example the C1 looks better yes, but when viewing the photos at 100% the art-images definitely look more detailed. But like maltmoose mentioned, the C1 photos do look a bit more contrasty so that might make them seem sharper.

And I don't agree that X-transformer is the best, RawTherapee is the best I've tried for X-trans. I really wish C1 used the same demosaicing, that would be a dream combo.
