“On 10 October, Leica launched in China a limited edition M7 to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the Xinhai Revolution.
Distinguished guests were invited to witness the launch of this camera in the ex-residence of Song Ching Ling.
Clad in green leather, this edition is limited to 101 pieces. The top plate is also inscribed with the words “天下为公。孙文”, and over at the back has the words “辛亥革命一百周年纪念，1911－2011”. A matching 50mm f/1.4 Summilux lens comes with the camera.
Following this limited edition M7, Leica also intends to produce similar ones for the M9, X1 and D-Lux 5.”
