Ahhh yes! I did forget that packaging and perception is sometimes more important than actual substance. Hence the small, but highly dedicated group of more optimally financially positioned Red Dot tax payers.

But to be fair, I think the actual audience for rather anachronistic products like the Leica M system is quite small, so part of the premium you pay is simply to keep them in business doing these niche types of products. And modern Leica M glass actually is top- notch. Sure Canon and Nikon do premium glass too, but their focus seems to be on large, fast lenses

Agreed! I have always, and will remain a dedicated fan of much of Leica's glass. It's just their digital camera bodies that fail to impress me - especially for the asking price. But I would find it very hard to find any similar faults with their outstanding optics.
