On one hand it's not surprising that a lens that weigh half as much and cost ~40% as much is the softer lens in direct comparison. The XF100-400mm f/4.5-5.6 would be the direct competitor to the 'Panaleica'.

But just looking at the XF shot in isolation... Yeah it looks softer than it should be.
MTF chart says it should resolve around 0.8 in the center for a 45 lines/mm target, which is better than this looks like.

If you suspect you have a faulty lens, I recommend instructions from website of Jim Kasson, resident of the Medium Format subforum: https://blog.kasson.com/lens-screening-testing/
