Why simple (but first rate) Large format lens is well over $1000 ? There is 3x less glass than in my "wunderzoom" 70-200/2.8 for example ?
Because Canon sells ten or hundret thousands of these wunderzooms, and there are sold 100x less LF lens.. This applies to Leica too. There are other reasons also..
