38 XCD on X2D, 45 GF on GFX 100S, foliage
1

I've run a comparison between the X2D with the 38 and the GFX 100S with the 45 with distant (100 meters) foliage as the subject.

Bottom line is that they are about the same, with the only important differences being that the 38 XCD is softer on the edge than the 45 GF at f/2.8.

Based on the price of the XCD lens -- more than twice that of the GF -- I am disappointed.
