Leica M7 Hermes Edition camera – just 200 available

M7_hermes

It's a thing of great beauty and arguably the most stylish retro camera on the planet – but the Leica M7 Hermes Edition camera is in seriously short supply, despite the ridiculously high price.

This limited edition of the classic 35mm rangefinder system camera is limited to just 100 units of each of the two colour combos – the orange above and a more laid back brown for the calfskin leather – each numbered for authenticity.

For the technical amongst you, if offers up a Leica SUMMILUX-M 35 mm f/1.4 ASPH. wide-angle lens, a matching classic round lens hood and a LEICAVIT M rapid winder, along with a real leather carrying strap matched to the colour of the camera and a linen-covered, silk-lined box. £8,850 is the price of this baby. If that's not scared you off, head on down to your local authorised Leica dealers and the Leica Store in Mayfair from December.
