Once again, don't believe the specs you read placed by manufacturers.
It isn't true.

Because Imacon can, because they use different technologies which are
apparently better enough in results for some to pay that much extra. But
the "lower end" market is being well served by the companies you mention
(and Minolta and Canon, etc.), so their isn't enough demand for more
expensive products (like Imacon) so prices stay high on the top end
I also "assume" Imacon offers much more customer support for that price
(at least I would hope so!)
