Re: Isn't it the same lens and sensor as the xz-2?

Aside from that, the difference in output should be down to software mostly, no?

I suppose it is the same lens as the XZ-1 and XZ-2, but it would seem that Pentax has used it's excellent SMC coatings indicated by the red "SMC" on the filter ring.

And AFAIK, you are correct that it's the same 12mp 1/1.7" BSI CMOS sensor from Sony which is an very good performer at lower ISO settings.  Haven't been able to convert any of the DNGs but the  ISO 100 image of the church (that have impressive sharpness, colors and detail) unfortunately, but even a couple of the ISO 1600 images at night look good.
