LEICA M7 limited Edition Hermès
This LEICA M7 limited Edition Hermès offers a total of 200 silver chrome LEICA M7 cameras with exquisite leather finishes applied by Hermès. The body and the carrying strap of the camera are made in Swift calfskin, a drummed leather with extreme suppleness. Connoisseurs of pieces that are extraordinary in both quality and style may choose between two eye-catching varieties in “étoupe” and “orange”. Only 100 cameras are available in each of the two leather colours.
In addition to the silver chrome camera, the special LEICA M7 Edition Hermès set also includes a matching, silver anodised LEICA SUMMILUX-M 35 mm f/1.4 ASPH. wide-angle lens. The lens is complemented by a classical round lens hood in silver anodised metal manufactured exclusively for the Edition Hermès. The set also includes a LEICAVIT M rapid winder finished in silver chrome. The finishing touch to the special edition is provided by the leather carrying strap handcrafted in the Hermès ateliers to match the colour of the camera chosen.
The lens: LEICA SUMMILUX-M 35mm/ f 1.4 ASPH. silver anodized finish
Since many decades the 35mm lenses are the basic equipment for M-cameras and therefore they are very popular. The SUMMILUX-M 35mm/ f1.4 ASPH. is one of the references in the fast wide angle field. These excellent image reproduction features honour the exclusive in the Edition Hermès available silver anodized version. Due to the silver anodized surface based on aluminium it was possible to maintain the total weight of the black version. The lens is completed by the classic round lens hood made of metal with silver anodized finish which is exclusive manufactured for the Edition Hermès. Front and rear cap are also made of silver anodized metal.
The rapid winder: LEICAVIT-M
The LEICAVIT-M is a compact, non electrical, manual rapid winder which is mounted in stead of the camera bottom plate. It gives the LEICA M7 Edition Hermès not only a special appearance but in combination with the aperture priority of the M7 a very fast shooting option. Corresponding to the camera and the lens in silver chrome finish.
