Leica Hermès M7 digital camera

Leica with Hermes...>.<
The old Parisian fashion house Hermès has teamed up with the German Leica brand to produce a very special collaboration: the Leica Hermès M7 digital camera.

This very special limited edition of the M7 35mm camera comes in silver chrome with calfskin leather accents in two colors, orange and the mysteriously named "etoupe" (sic).  The orange version seems like the one you'd take on a hunting trip, while the etoupe seems like more of a safari jaunt. For me personally will like the orange one...so Hermes :P

The M7 includes a Leica SUMMILUX-M 35 mm f/1.4 ASPH. wide-angle lens, lens hood, LEICAVIT M winder and a matching carrying case. There aren't too many changes from the original M7, just a few cosmetic things mostly so the original styling doesn't clash with your new baby cow skin leather.

Only 200 have been created, with 100 available in each colour. An individual serial number will ensure you'll fetch a pretty penny for these if you ever need to sell them on in the coming years, but at £8,550 or about $14,400 USD it's only for the seriously-minded. The standard M7 costs about $5,000 and these things last forever, so it's not like you'll have to buy the Leica "M7S" (zing!) in six months. The M7 Hermes edition will be available in the UK sometime in December.

Anyone interested for giving a way Leica M7 Hermes edition as a Xmas gift??
