6 Reasons For
33% higher megapixel Edit
The Leica Q (Typ 116) is a 24.2MP digital camera. That's 7.9MP higher than the Fujifilm X70 (24.2MP). 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.

Image stabilizer Edit
The Leica Q (Typ 116) has an image stabilizer, however the Fujifilm X70 does not have an image stabilizer. Read more

Camera shake is a major cause of blurred images, especially with handheld photography or in low light situations where a slow shutter speed is required. Image stabiliser technology detects and corrects slight camera shakes.

Cameras with image stabiliser technology enable steady shooting at lower aperture, making them ideal for situations where the use of flash is not permitted or desired.

1.1 smaller minimum aperture number Edit
The Leica Q (Typ 116) has a minimum aperture number of 1.7, however the Fujifilm X70 is a 2.8 minimum aperture digital camera (1.1 larger).
One more aspheric element Edit
The number of aspheric elements on the Leica Q (Typ 116) is three, but the Fujifilm X70 only has two aspheric elements.
