Ken rails against M shooters who choose Cosina Voigtlander glass

Why would somebody buy a 4000 Euro camera body and then choose cheap
lenses?

Because they just spent 4000 Euro on the body and have very little money left.

Wouldn’t it be a better idea to buy Leica lenses and attach these to
cheaper M mount bodies (like a Voigtländer Bessar)?

Yes, that would make more sense.

Wouldn’t it be strange to buy a D3x and use a low end third party
lens with it?

The CV lenses for M- and R-mounts aren't, imo, "low end." The CV stuff has gotten very, very good reviews. IMO comparing a 21mm CV to a 21mm Leica is not the same as comparing, say, a Sigma 18-50/2.8 to a Nikon 17-55/2.8. The difference btwn the CV and Leica lens is much narrower...imo.
