I don't know why we keep assuming

Yes it has the word Leica stamped on it and is not impossible that they charge a premium for the fashionable name alone. Therefore? Therefore we don't know.

Could be higher quality control, higher precision, smaller volume, higher wages, etc. Those explanations too are not impossible...
