I have one, and admit it's a bit of a luxury. Mine is the original one (aluminum) and I bought it second hand and got it quite a bit less than a new one. That said, in use it's a fantastic jig. It's also much easier to use than I though it would be...as long as you keep the faces of your workpieces organized. Some guys dedicate a router to the jig, then someone suggested that just dedicate a plunge base to it, that was the route I took. I swap the motor in when I use the jig. If you will be doing a lot of integral M&T joints this would be the way to do it. But building your own and using it for a while may give you some insight on whether you want to purchase the Leigh jig.....and your shop one might do so well you wouldn't need to.
