Blender (2.81 (or 2.8) ) solely for 3D painting a model (from textures)


Which one is better Mudbox or the latest version of Blender (2.81 or 2.8)? In this case i mean solely for the reasons of 3D painting a 3D model from (photo) textures. (I do NOT mean painting a stylized character using only colors).?
Which is better speedwise and feature wise…? AFAIK at this stage it should be blender, right…?
