You have the Kowa 8x33 and the Nikon 8x30 E2 so you can afford to wait for the Leica Noctivid 8x32 :-)

If you mean similar enough as a Leica Ultravid 8x32 is to a Swaro 8x32 SV than I suppose that's true.

The 8x30 Habicht is smaller than the 8x30 E2 so it provides a different ergonomic experience. I prefer the way the E2 feels (more bin to wrap your hands around).
