The only explanation I can think about is that the Leica to seller prices are mulitplied with a (agreed upon, to control market prices) high factor to obtain the final consumer selling price. It might be that grey market sellers just choose to have lower margins... The fact that it's a 2004 MP doens't seem strange to me: after all, what is the ratio between what is produced and what is sold? If production was lower than demand, I'm sure Leica would be in better papers nowadays. So nothing wrong about a body residing in stock for a few years.
