Any merit in the prime lens "zoom"??

Like many others here I have been looking at the Leica Q2. One of the aspects that interested me was the "digital zoom" - poor English if you as me as it is a cropping tool without the magnification.

So I had a look at those Leica files, here is one from an official Leica website, for scale only:

A 24Mpx crop

And a 16Mpx crop

I chose those 2 crops as many here would have had some exposure to a 16Mpx or a 24Mpx sensor. In fact some current cameras still use 24Mpx.

The example possibly not the best, a close up would have shown more about what this camera is capable of (I think...)

For the first time ever I have been seriously thinking about something like the Q2.

Is this the future, possible future or just a fad that will go?
