Sort of.  It's a completely different form, but when --no-index is
left out the syntax is a special case of "git diff -- <path>...".

Maybe it would make sense to move towards eliminating the "implicit
--no-index for paths outside the repository" trick.  I use "git diff
--no-index" all the time, but I always spell it out to be careful.
