i have both.

XP1 has a lot more DR, and shadow are really clean and usable.

using Hi-iso they perform really similar, at low iso 5D2 has a little more details, at least shooting RAW and using LR to convert files (but LR really is not so good in render fine detail with XP1)

here u can see a test i did months ago to check Highlight recovery using fuji XP1 and canon 5D2 (with hilight priority ON)


as u seen fuji is far superior even using HTP on canon (that give u 1 stop more, but more shadow noise)

shadow noise (pattern noise) on canon 5D2 it's really a shame


for sure XP1 has a wonderful IQ, the camera it's a joke to use, but sometimes it  can be really irritating so, check if the limitation of X-system  aren't important for ur kind of photography (continuos af, tele lenses, image stabilisation, etc, fast write and review, better af, etc)
