Leica M7 Hermes Edition camera

by Modculture 17 November, 2009


Not out soon enough to make our best 60s-style cameras list, the Leica M7 Hermes Edition camera would certainly have been a contender, although a ridiculously high price would certainly have gone against it.

This ultra-stylish 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 individually 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.
