Could I ask what is the benefit of using this body over any other regular rangefinder camera with the same lenses?

Counter question, what is the benefit of a built in view- and rangefinder with an uncoupled lens and external viewfinder?

for that sort of money + the cost of a lens you might also considered a used Hassy SWC!

It seems like for the price of the 15 or even the 21 it would be a better deal to get a hassy swc

Somehow I don´t get the concept of this camera! with the Bessa L it was the cheapest alternative for using the 15 Heliar and this worked sales wise but 1000$ for AE in Superwide?? Ain´t TTL lightmeters fooled easily by WA lenses anyways?
otoh I salute Zeiss for bringing out exotic Film equipment in these digital times!
BUT I much rather have my Leica Standard WA (Leica L or whatever you wanna call it ) plus incident light meter...

What does this camera provide me over my Canon Model P and Gossen Luna Pro--$400 total? CV wide/ superwide lenses come w/ a dedicated VF. Am I missing something here?

If "the camera" is my Model P, impossible. LTM to M--OK w/ adapter, but not the reverse.

The production has stopped obviously. If you want a new one at the half price (or less) have a look here:
