Of all the special editions, this one ranks up there as one of my favourites and by far one of my favourite M7 cameras. Leica made 2 versions of the special edition Hermes set. One is an obnoxious orange and the other classic, subtle, and refined etoupe.
This was the first example of Hermes buying into the Leica brand. Few examples followed afterwards until Hermes finally revoked their association with Leica. A 35mm F1.4 with the specially made lens shade was also the first of the 6 bit examples. Soft leather, classic script on the top, unique lens hood, and perfect presentation make this a must have.
A great investment, just like all high-end Hermes products. This is extremely hard to find now a days, having only 3 sets in the last 15 years. It's a bit posh, but once you have a pleasure of holding one you will understand the true quality of two luxury brands coming together and creating something phenomenal.
