About the same? One better than the other? Both good, both bad? I am going to pull the trigger this weekend (yaaaaay).
A couple comments -
The best deal on any lease will be on MONDAY 3/31. Not Saturday / Not Sunday - MONDAY. It is not just the last day of the month, it is the last day of the quarter. If you know what you want, and they have your car in stock - the best deal can be made on Monday - preferably in the evening when they are tired.
Offer them zero down - sign and drive - don't offer a penny - this will maximize your first free payment from Lexus. The F-Sport you listed at $345/mo is the better deal - purely financially. If you are stubborn, I would start with $250 total per month on an offer. You are willing to lease a car today, with rock-star credit. They may go back and forth with you for an hour, but stick to your guns and I'd be surprised if you don't walk out with a deal at less than $300 per month on that car!
