It's because there really is no "Leica-look". It's just a term that has come about because people want to believe that their expensive Leica gives them something special when it comes to image quality.

I agree.  What a load of hooey.  The "Leica look" is something dreamed up by Leica-philes to justify the fact that they have paid several times what a particular piece of equipment is worth.  I defy any Leica buff to look at ten high-quality images and correctly pick out the one image shot with a Leica more than 10% of the time on average.  This isn't sour grapes, BTW - I own a couple of Leicas.  They make good equipment, but so does Fuji and others.
