The 'Price is high' can be roughly translated to 'it costs almost twice the money it is worth'. This Panasonic LX-7 rebranding costs for example more than the Fujifilm X100, or the Sony RX100, so, it is aimed for 'special' kinds of people. 

"The Leica D-Lux 6 is a superb camera with many DSLR features packed into a compact body with a number of external controls, which produces excellent images. If you have a good budget to spend and aren't concerned by large amounts of optical zoom, but want a serious camera capable of great results, you can't go wrong, although the price will be off-putting to many. You can shoot at full resolution at 11 fps, battery life is excellent, there is low noise up to ISO 3200, and full manual controls with RAW shooting. The camera has a more subtle design than the Panasonic Lumix LX7, the prestigeous Leica red dot, as well as a a number of bundled extras."
