Neither is top of the line. They're different.
The X-Pro2 has a much better LCD (resolution) but it's fixed rather than flippy like the XT-2.
In most other specs the XT-2 is better.

The real difference is the hybrid viewfinder. X-Pro2 has it, XT2 does not.

I got a used X100S and love it. I have never used a range finder and that's the appeal for many regarding the X-Pro2.
The X100S is cheap, small and has the hybrid viewfinder. It will take great pics as long as it works. Judging by how beaten up mine is, it seems to be tough too.

I'd consider them both top of their line.....but it's two different lines.

The x-pro and x-e is fujis range finder line (The x100 could fall in this category too but I consider the x100 a whole different line)

The x-t is Fuji's SLR line.

The x-pro2 is currently the top dog in the range finder line and the x-t2 is currently top dog in the SLR line.

Each line, and more specifically, each camera (x-pro2 and x-t2) has their set of difference but they all basically have the same engine under the hood.

Here is a good side by side comparison of the two

Some might say the GFX is top dog. :-D

I'm a happy X-PRO2 shooter. But there are things I miss over the X-T2 in no particular order

The huge EVF - you have to use it to really appreciate it, particularly when manual focusing, more too in the dark.
The flip out screen, for the few times the camera gets low or high or backed up against a wall.
The fecking ISO controllable from the front wheel - why Fuji why can't we have that?
The ability to attach a grip for the boost function giving flicker free CH (14fps) and better AF.
HDMI out to record video with an atomos or whatever.

Things I like about the X-PRO2 most, all the controls on the right hand, especially the play button & it's rangefinder look. Makes using two eyes easier.

I don't often need to shoot sports were I need 10+ fps and for video I have bigger 4K cameras but you know sometimes bringing a small system that can do all is nice. I think with Fuji the X-T2 is probably the closest thing to an all rounder camera.
