Used Leica MP 0.72 Hermes edition set with Summicron-M 35mm f/2 ASPH lens listed for sale

Leica Store Miami currently has a Leica MP 0.72 Hermes edition set with Summicron-M 35mm f/2 ASPH lens listed for sale for $11,995 (online exclusive). Here is the description and additional pictures:

In the early 2000s, Leica introduced the MP Hermes Edition Set, which included the Summicron-M 35mm f/2 ASPH lens in silver chrome. Only 500 sets were produced and we are pleased to offer set number 077/500. The camera is wrapped in exquisite Barenia calfskin leather supplied by the famed Parisian high-fashion house Hermès.

This special edition includes a camera carrying strap that is handcrafted by Hermès, using the same exquisite Barenia leather. The lens hood, the camera body cap as well as the front and rear covers of the lens are made of solid brass and they too, are finished in silver chrome. Details such as the silver-chrome finger tab on the lens and the special serial numbers from 001/500 to 500/500 engraved on the lens and on the camera round out the differences from regular production models. The cooperation with Hermès is indicated by a fine embossing on the back of the carrying strap that reads “Hermès – Made in France”.
