Yes, they are very similar.

About 2 years ago I posted and showed how the Leica TL2 and Panasonic ZS100/TZ100/TX1 have similar styling (except for size):

Leica and Panasonic have such a close partnership at this stage that Leica is almost Panasonic's luxury brand (in a similar way to Volkswagen and Audi, or Toyota and Lexus).

As well as Leica rebadging the LX100 and FX bridge cameras, cameras like the Q/Q2 and the L-mount cameras are basically luxury, high-end implementations of Panasonic hardware (with Leica input in the design, optics, firmware, menus and some of the internals).
