Finally I found one reason to buy Leica.

Leica M10 Body: 7,295$
Summilux-M 35mm f/1.4 5,295$
Total $12590

a7 iii $1,998
FE 35mm f/1.4 ZA: $1,598
Total: $3596

So for same set up Leica is 3.5 time higher. When we take as a system It's going to be the same story making us to loose even more money as Leica system. I always broke my head thinking why people buy such expensive camera. I saw many explanations in heavily up voted posts and video which never satisfied me.

now I found two reason which my mind can justified the purchase of Leica

Reason : 1
I found my country and 1st world countries have very big income ratio gap. The wages in USA is 15.5x higher than ours (Sri Lanka) for similar jobs as well as qualifications. So they won't mind 3.5x expensive camera.

Reason :2,777.615,716.484,486.698,ha,t

There are many people willing to buy A7 iii with FE 35mm f/1.4 ZA in my country.

If they can buy that they would definitely buy M10 with Summilux-M 35mm f/1.4 for the size and weight advantage given the fact they are only 3.5x highly priced. Only If they live in a country where they can earn 15.5x more money.

how Summilux-M 35mm f/1.4 can be this sharp wide open and such small? There is this voigtlander 35mm f/1.4 recently released for Sony. But that is not a great lens and it has cat eye bokeh.
I would really love a e mount 35mm compact manual focus f/1.4 with non cat eye bokeh and nail sharp wide open as Leica. Why that is impossible with mirror-less?
