Generally, its tough to picture the contrast between sensor sizing simply by checking specifications. The graphic underneath will help provide you a much better sense of the sensor measurements in the M341 and X Vario.

Plainly, both of these cameras provide different megapixels and different sensor sizing. The M341 using its tinier sensor is going to make getting shallow depth of field more challenging and the Leica X Vario will resolve greater detail because of its extra 4MP. Greater resolution will let you crop images more aggressively. The older M341 is going to be behind in sensor tech.
