Leica Unveils M7 Limited Edition Hermès

Leica M7 Edition �Hermès� Rangefinder Camera

Leica has launched the M7 Edition Hermès, created in cooperation with the Parisian company known for its exclusive products (and royal prices!).

The limited Leica M7 Edition ‘Hermès’ offers a total of 200 silver chrome Leica M7 cameras finished in exclusive calfskin leather supplied by Hermès. Leica said the colors of this exclusive ‘Veau Swift’ leather are particularly extravagant. There are two variations to choose from: Ètoupe (they wouldn’t call it Brown, above) and Orange. Only 100 cameras are available in each of the two leather colors.

The set includes a matching, silver anodized LEICA SUMMILUX-M 35 mm f/1.4 ASPH wide-angle lens. The lens is complemented by a classical round lens hood in silver anodized metal manufactured exclusively for the Edition ‘Hermès’.

The LEICA M7 Edition ‘Hermès’ is available from December for an exorbitant price of over $14,000 designed to exclude you and I. The ‘ordinary’ Leica M7, launched way back in 2002, retails between $4000 and $5000 today. The M7 is a classic analog Leica in the 35mm film format. The Hermès edition updates only its skin, not its content or operation.
