why are leica products so expensive?

i'm not trolling.... i am sure those products produce awesome results, but nothing overly impressive when compared to nikon/canon's professional products which cost less. And if Leica products were so awesome, why is nikon/canon still most widely used by professionals?

I asked a photographer this question once and all he said was, "when a photographer uses a nikon/canon to capture a picture, it's just a picture. When a photographer uses a Leica camera+lens to capture a picture, he/she also captures a piece of history".

i, of course, laughed...LOL! A piece of history? sounds a bit delusional to me. Take a picture of a tree with a canon/nikon and it's a tree. Take it with a Leica and it's still a tree. lol

so why so expensive? The ferrari of cameras?
