Leica Q worth it still? not trolling, seriously wondering

In a world where I can buy a $2000 ILC FF camera like Sony A7iii and pair that with a Zeiss Planar f/1.4 prime, why would I pay more for a Q in 2018? It’s compact and light? Yes. It looks like an M class body but feels like high end Lumix (not that there’s anything wrong with that). Is the Summilux a “real” summilux, or is it a “summilumix”? That could again not be a problem if it is more lumix than Leica, it just cuts into that whole “camera with lens costs less than just the lens alone” argument which is either the main satisfaction of ownership, or a marketing strategy.
