 From the specification comparison table we can see that

 

The Fuji X-Pro 2 camera features more bigger sensor and bit extra resolution over the Olympus PEN F,  the other advantage of the X-Pro 2 camera is X-Trans architecture based sensor that completely eliminates the need Low pass filter.

sensor-size-mirrorlessAs you can see in the sensor size difference, the Olympus PEN F features 4/3 sensor on the other side the Fuji X-Pro 2 camera features APS-C sensor, so without doubt we will see more details in Fuji X-Pro 2 images.

2AXIS-IS-versus-5AXIS-IS_enThe 5 axis image stabilization system used in Olympus reduces the camera shake upto 5 stops, the camera doesn’t need IS based lenses and on the other side we have Fuji that doesn’t feature built in IS, the IS depend upon the type of lenses used.

The AF system of Fuji is advance compared to the Olympus, due to the help of X-Trans tech the Fuji enjoys the Hybrid CMOS AF and lock down AF in a min speed of 0.06 sec only, on the other side we have PEN -F that limited to contrast based AF system only.

Video recording is almost same, both the camera limited to full HD video recording and doesn’t support 4K. It’s really strange to ss a $1K range mirrorless cameras announced in 2016 and remains limited to Full HD mode only.
