Ok, maybe not syntax, but approach, logic. Java, Javascript or C# person will learn Python much faster than Perl.

Python syntax for objects and classes is more common with Java and C# or even PHP. Perl looks strange to Java and C# crowd. Python not so much, after you get used to mandatory indentation.
