Sounds pretty accurate. It's Leica. They can come up with a price and charge what they want, because they don't need your money, you want their producits. It puts them in an advantageous position when it comes to setting prices.

Ok... why would I want that camera over something else?

Leicas are manufactured to extremely high standards, which does for one dictate their prices. The tolerances of what Leica deem acceptable are far tighter, resulting in more waste. As a result, their products are top notch. Specifically why you'd want an M9 though, is because M series rangefinders are extremely discrete and subtle, and have been described as the ultimate for street and candid photography. That, and insanely good and legendary glass like the f/0.95 Noctilux. You are right though, in your implication that they have a degree of fashion/designer cache, the Lecia name dictates a higher price, simply because.

Just ordered a new Panasonic LX3 to replace my old digital camera ready for a trip.

Also ordered:

Gordy Camera Strap - 58inch sling With split-ring lug mount connector & integral bumper and neck pad (dark brown leather and green wrapping to all)

JJC ALC-3 lens cap (no fiddling with lens caps)

16gb Bytestor class 6 SHDC card (cheap and not let me down in the past 5 years)

Addtional Panosonic battery (Just in case)

and

DMW-CLX3 Black Original Leather Case (in the end this was my guilty pleasure)

Only bit of existing kit to keep will be my Manfrotto 785B tripod which replaced a broken tripod a year or so ago.

Don't think there is anything else I need.

dSLR:

Canon EOS 60D - Main body

Canon EOS 20D - Backup body

Canon SpeedLite 430EX II flash

Canon 28-105 f/3.5-4.5 USM lenses (Getting 24-105 f/4L and 70-200 f/4L soon)

Compact:

Canon SD790 IS - Main

Canon SD300 - Backup

Honestly I've stopped caring about performance P&S cameras after my SD790 IS. My dSLR is so much better; if I care about image quality I bring that along, if I don't the SD790 IS is a fine camera. No HD video but I can't recall the last time where I needed to shoot in HD out of the blue. The 60D is a brilliant HD camera though.
