Leica M7 Hermes



I doubt most of us could afford this lovely limited edition new Leica M7 Hermes edition camera which is about the price for an average car, but what a beautiful sight well-designed objects are to look at. These Leica babies can get very spendy like this one. Wow. How many of you have a Leica? Any model (on the more economical price point of their line) is pretty much on my long term wish list, they are so beautiful.

Oh yes, swoon! Every once in awhile I go on their site and torture myself by configuring one of their custom cameras. I do have a Leica, but not this one, sadly...

It's my dream to shoot with a Leica... For now I will stick with my (also lovely) 50D.

I have the D-Lux 2, I think it's beautiful looking and it does take great pictures, but I think the prices on these lovely looking cameras are over rated, I would of been just as happy owning a nikon.

Oh wow, I didn't think Leica could make their cameras any more beautiful! The Leica was the pinacle of cool when I was in art school.

I got lucky and bought a beautiful used leica c-lux in perfect condition this past summer. It looks like a regular point and shoot but the pictures are gorgeous because of the leica lens.

The camera store I go to specializes in Leicas so i'm always on the look out for more used ones. The M-system is probably the most gorgeous camera ever. But if i were to buy a camera tomorrow, it'd be the olympus pen

These Leica cameras are on my wish list, as well! Oh, if only, if only...

My father had a Leica M3 up until right before I went to college. He sold it (because my sister, mother, and I would complain about how long it took to set up to take a photo with it) and bought an Olympus OM-G which became my camera when I ended up studying photography in college. Sad and ironic that I came so close to being able to really appreciate the work of art that was my father's Leica. :(
