Sad to report the BR loaner I got while my own copy is in for service, is no better. Shows the exact same inferior performance compared to the old 80D. Will see how my own BR one comes back, but my suspicion is that this is how it is.

And what about  Phase One 120mm MF Macro f/4.0 manual vs blue-ring schneider LS f/4 macro? I need a very good corner to corner sharp lens for art photography for sake of archive and re-production and am hesitate which one to get. I really don't need autofocus.

Og You don't need af, I think the manual D Lena is YouTube best choice.
You can buy it for less than 1.000 $ and it's just as sharp
as the new blue ring. The only reason to get the new one
is really if you want to use the focus-stacking om the xf.
If I should not use that I would never buy an af macro-Lens.
The manual D lens is very very good and cheap and easy to buy
now.
