PurseBlog.com has an article about the Leica M7 Hermes edition and gallery of what's in the box. This is the part I found interesting about the included silver chrome 35mm f/1.4 Summilux-M lens:

"The unique part about this limited lens is that Leica created a new production process to silver anodize the lens’ aluminum alloy barrel and rings; unlike in previous lenses, where the silver chrome effect could only be applied to much heavier brass barrels and rings. As a result, this silver chrome ‘Lux is the same weight as the black anodized version, which is a first for Leica."

Head over to The PurseBlog and check the remaining details.
