3 shops are selling it
A greater number of shops increases the price competition amongst retailers for the product and also increases the chances of this digital camera remaining in stock.

The Leica Q (Typ 116) has 11 awards from expert review sites, but the Sigma DP0 Quattro has 1 award.

The Sigma DP0 Quattro has a megapixel of 29MP, whereas the Leica Q (Typ 116) is only a 24.2MP digital camera (4.8MP lower). Read more

The resolution of the images a digital camera produces is measured in megapixels (MP). One megapixel is equal to 1 million pixels and is a result of the pixel width multiplied by the pixel height of the image. While a higher image resolution generally results in sharper images, only a relatively low megapixel count is required when printing the image at a small size or to display it on a computer screen.

A sensor with more megapixels will be able to capture more detailed photos and the image will appear sharper. Images with more megapixels can also be printed at a larger size.

A lot smaller maximum aperture number Edit
The Sigma DP0 Quattro is a 22 maximum aperture digital camera, whereas the Leica Q (Typ 116) is only a 16 maximum aperture digital camera (6 bigger).
Hugely higher display resolution (numeric) Edit
Sigma DP0 Quattro is 920,000 pixels display resolution, but the Leica Q (Typ 116) is only a 104,000 pixels display resolution digital camera (816,000 pixels lower).
