Why would people buy a Leica that's identical to a Pany at double the price?

The Leica V-Lux 5 looks and feel the same as the Pany FZ1000 Mark II. They have the same lens, same specs and interface. I am not even surprised if someone tells me that the Leica is made by Panasonic.

But the price is more than double.

I am wonder who would buy that name on it for $600? Am I missing something?
