Leica has confirmed the launch of a limited edition of its M7 camera, the Leica M7 Hermes Edition.
The Leica M7 Hermes Edition is the second collaboration between Leica and Hermes, there will only be 200 of this limited edition Leica M7 produced, 100 in orange and 100 in green, and each camera will features a special sequential serial number between 001 and 200.
The LEICA M7 Edition ‘Hermès’ camera has a number of distinct features compared to the standard LEICA M7 model. For example, the top plate is engraved with the Leica name in classic script: the red Leica logo has been omitted to preserve the colour harmony of the leather covering,
All control elements of the LEICA M7 Edition ‘Hermès’ have been manufactured exclusively in metal, and the back of the camera is finished in silver chrome. Furthermore, the red colour of the engraved AUTO and flash settings on the shutter speed dial has been replaced by the specific shade of the camera’s leather.
The Leica M7 Hermes Edition will go on sale in the UK in December for £8,550 about $14,300.
