In collaboration with high fashion brand Hermès, Leica introduces a very special limited edition M9-P “Edition Hermès” and “Edition Hermès – Série Limitée Jean-Louis Dumas” cameras. The Leica M9-P Edition Hermès is offered in two different sets: This first of the Leica M9-P “Edition Hermès” sets is available from June 2012 in a worldwide limited edition of 300, for the price tag of $25,000. In addition to the camera, the set includes a silver-anodized Leica Summilux-M 50 mm f/1.4 ASPH . The second one, the Leica M9-P “Edition Hermès – Série Limitée 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.” (This set is slated for a July release and can be yours for $50,000.) Both options are available exclusively through Leica stores and boutiques. Check out the making-of and unboxing videos embedded after the break.
