They use the same sensor. Leica and Panasonic have been working toghether on this ones for years. Hence the Lumix's leica lens. The biggest difference is price and sofware.

Honestly, the only difference between these cameras is the price. (and color, name on the case, etc. ya ya I know. ) I don't know where snapsort is getting the data from, but now I doubt their whole system.
