Oops sorry
2900usd is the price of a
Leica R9 35mm SLR Manual Focus Camera (Anthracite) with 28-70mm f/3.5-4.5 R
Lens Gift Set at B&H
Is that the one NOT made by Sigma?

 $  2,395.00 for black R9.

$   1,995.0 Leica R9 35mm SLR Manual Focus Camera Body - Black - Betriebsk

"this camera is the special edition "Betriebsk." version. The term
Betriebsk. refers to a test camera or factory camera. In the past,
Betriebsk. cameras were highly sought after by collectors because of the
very limited number of cameras available with this designation. Produced in
a very limited quantity, this camera is brand new, unused, with full
warranty. " 

$  2,395.00 R9 35mm SLR Manual Focus Camera Body - Black

Chump change!
