All Leica R models up to the R6 included major components from Minolta.
The R6-2 contained no Minolta components. All the components were either manufactured or sourced by Leica. So the purity of the Leica DNA in the R6.2 may account for its greater perceived value.
Apart from the higher 1/2000 shutter speed, the R6.2 also has a reputation for excellent reliability.
