My folks got the leica this winter and I got the chance to use it a lot over the christmas break. I liked it a lot. The panasonic you posted is what I was thinking about getting.
Same camera, half the price. Plus, on the Lumix version you don't have to buy the hand grip separate.

The forums say that Leica processes the images slightly better on the version with their name on it, but it sounds like a negligible difference.
