The Leica M9-P ‘Edition Hermès’ has been criticized by some as an exercise in overpriced luxury and a blatant attempt to make absurd profits from an otherwise much less expensive camera. Others see it as an amazingly well made, hand-crafted special edition, marketed to the few that can afford it. However, regardless of what one might think about it, it is indeed an amazingly well made piece of equipment, including its accessories. Is it worth the price? Apparently Leica thinks that 400 people do think so.
