If there was one camera made for the street ‘style’ photographer… this is it. Although it may be priced out of reach for most, the $50,000 special edition Leica M9-P for Hermès is a masterpiece of craftsmanship, beauty and impeccable presentation. Watch the hand-made process after the break…
The limited edition Leica is a unique M9-P collaboration with Hermes. This camera features an exquisitely finished calfskin leather body and a particularly rigorous attention to detail. Complete with a custom set of lenses and a gorgeous Hermes shoulder bag.
The Leica M9-P “Edition Hermes” is offered in two different sets, with either one or three lenses. When compared with their standard versions, the design of all the lenses incorporates numerous differences in their details, ensuring a perfect harmonization of the cameras, their lenses and accessories. The first set is available from June 2012 in a worldwide limited edition of 300. In addition to the camera, the set includes a silver-anodized Leica Summilux-M 50 mm f/1.4 ASPH. Following this will be a very special set available from July 2012. The Leica M9-P “Edition Hermes” – Serie Limitee Jean-Louis Dumas” is a celebration of the friendship and collaboration between Jean-Louis Dumas, the former president of Hermès, who passed away in May 2010, and Leica Camera AG. A strictly limited edition of only 100, the camera in this set is accompanied by three lenses: a Leica Summicron-M 28 mm f/ 2 ASPH., a Leica Noctilux-M 50 mm f/0.95 ASPH. and a Leica APO-Summicron-M 90 mm f/ 2 ASPH., all featuring a silver-anodized finish.
