Hasselblad X1D: Distinguishing Nuanced Detail (Mission Painting)

Adobe Camera Raw view ACR settings.

What particularly impresses me about the X1D is the highlight discrimination, the subtle nuances of detail in high-key areas, a quality that I sense is lacking in nearly all 35mm format cameras, the sole possible exception being the Nikon D810 (and I am not sure on that count!).

This highlight discrimination is a key image quality aspect of the X1D, since its base level noise is no better than the Nikon D810. Certainly the Canon 5Ds R cannot compete at any pixel quality level, as field shots whack one on the head with the quality difference.
