All in all, both of the cameras come with different resolutions and different sensor dimensions. The Fujifilm X100 because of its tinier sensor will make getting shallower depth of field more challenging and the Leica Q2 will resolve greater detail due to its extra 35 Megapixels. Higher resolution can also enable you to crop photographs a good deal more aggressively. The more aged Fujifilm X100 is going to be disadvantaged when it comes to sensor innovation.
