Reasons For

6 Reasons For
8.2MP higher megapixel Edit
The Leica Q (Typ 116) has a megapixel of 24.2MP, however the Nikon Coolpix P610 is only a 16MP digital camera (8.2MP lower). Read more

The resolution of the images a digital camera produces is measured in megapixels (MP). One megapixel is equal to 1 million pixels and is a result of the pixel width multiplied by the pixel height of the image. While a higher image resolution generally results in sharper images, only a relatively low megapixel count is required when printing the image at a small size or to display it on a computer screen.

A sensor with more megapixels will be able to capture more detailed photos and the image will appear sharper. Images with more megapixels can also be printed at a larger size.

9.5 smaller maximum aperture number Edit
The Leica Q (Typ 116) has a maximum aperture number of 16, however the Nikon Coolpix P610 is only a 6.5 maximum aperture digital camera (9.5 bigger).
Smaller minimum aperture number Edit
Leica Q (Typ 116) is 1.7 minimum aperture. That's 1.6 smaller than the Nikon Coolpix P610 (3.3).
Seven more awards
The Leica Q (Typ 116) has 11 awards, however the Nikon Coolpix P610 has 4 awards.

5 Reasons For
Hugely bigger optical zoom Edit
The Nikon Coolpix P610 has an optical zoom of 60x, but the Leica Q (Typ 116) is only a 1x optical zoom digital camera (59x smaller). Read more

The optical zoom of a camera is a measure of how much the camera can zoom in to the subject using the camera's lens system. An optical zoom is superior to a digital zoom because the zoom is achieved using the optics of lens which means that the full extent of the digital sensor is always used to capture the image.

A larger optical zoom allows you to zoom in on the subject without having to move closer. Compared to a digital zoom, using an optical zoom does not result in a loss of image quality.

2.2x bigger digital zoom Edit
The Nikon Coolpix P610 has a digital zoom of 4x, whereas the Leica Q (Typ 116) is only a 1.8x digital zoom digital camera (2.2x smaller). Read more

The digital zoom of a camera is a measure of how much the camera can zoom in by cropping the image received by the camera's sensor. A digital zoom is not as good as an optical zoom as it will result in a reduction in image quality the further you zoom in. This is because fewer of the camera's pixels are being used to capture the image.

A digital zoom allows you to enlarge the subject but this can result in the image becoming blurry. A digital zoom can be used if an optical zoom is not available.

Vari-angle LCD display Edit
The Nikon Coolpix P610 has a vari-angle LCD display, but the Leica Q (Typ 116) does not have a vari-angle LCD display.
Vastly higher display resolution (numeric) Edit
The Nikon Coolpix P610 has a display resolution (numeric) of 921,000 pixels, however the Leica Q (Typ 116) is only a 104,000 pixels display resolution digital camera (817,000 pixels lower).
GPS (satellite) Edit
The Nikon Coolpix P610 has a GPS (satellite), but the Leica Q (Typ 116) does not have a GPS (satellite). Read more

GPS allows the camera to know where it is in the world and to automatically tag each of your photos with the location it was taken at.

If your photos have been tagged with a GPS location you can see where they were taken, automatically let your favourite photo software or website retrieve the address for that location or display them on a map.
