Leica D-Lux 7 007 Edition

0

Leica has announced a new limited special James Bond 007 Edition of the Leica D-Lux 7 and a photography exhibition from James Bond films spanning 60 years at Leica's London Gallery.

The connection between Leica and Bond goes back to the the novel Goldfinger, in which James Bond uses a Leica M3. But Leica has started an official partnership with Bond since No Time To Die, the movie in which Q owns a Leica Q2 while Bond himself has a Leica M10 in his Jamaican villa. In 2021 two special editions of the Q2 were released, the Leica Q2 007 Edition and the Daniel Craig x Greg Williams edition of the Leica Q2.

The Leica D-Lux 7 007 Edition trim is made of a high-performance, rhombus-textured material that is unprecedented on a D-Lux 7. Its subtle rhombus pattern is repeated on the hand grip, which – together with its wrist strap – ensures the safe handling of the camera.
