The Making of the Leica M9-P “Edition Hermès” – Série Limitée Jean-Louis Dumas

If you’re one of the 1% and happen to have $50,000 in your bank account that’s just sitting there collecting dust, this bag is for you. Hermès, the Parisian fashion company best known for its redonkulous expensive wearable accessories, has teamed up with Leica for some creative marketing. Two special M9-P editions will be available – a total of 300 Edition Hermès digital rangefinders will ship beginning in June for $25,000, while 100 “very special” (even more redonkulous exclusive) Edition Hermès – Série Limitée Jean-Louis Dumas models will be available in July for, ahem, $50,000.

The less expensive version uses some fancy calfskin leather with a silver chrome finish, and ships with a Leica Summilux-M 50 mm f/1.4 ASPH. optic. The “very redonkulous special” version, on the other hand, includes 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 finished in anodized silver. It also comes with a bag and a book.
