⭕ I am selling my cherished MP Hermes with its limited edition 35mm Summicron ASPH lens. There were only 500 Hermes cameras made in 2003, when Leica was partially owned by Hermes. Hermes is a French company famous for its saddles and clothes. This is 50/500, a nice number. The camera is covered in Hermes tan leather and is exquisite to hold. It is an amazing leather to hold. The neck strap has beautiful stitching. The camera comes with a special chrome body cap.

The 35mm Summicron has a matching 50/500 serial number and has special features. The focusing tab is chromed metal instead of black plastic. And the hood is beautiful chromed brass, instead of rectangular plastic. The lens comes with a chrome lens cap. It originally came with a chrome rear lens cap as well, which was stolen. I have replaced it with a more valuable original Leitz chrome lens cap.

I have owned the camera since new and have put only about 20 rolls of film through it since I started shooting digital shortly after buying the camera. But even 20 rolls of use has created small signs of use, which I have presented in the accompanying pictures. Notably, there is minor polishing of the camera body where the leather strap rubbed against it (the MPs dont have the black plastic strap protectors, thankfully). There is a very minor rub mark on the chrome lens hood and a small, round raised area on the back, just to the left of the iso dial.
