Leica Rumors: M10 to be BW Camera

leica Rumor has it, that the next Leica will be BW.

I find that concept interessting, especially if they do not go for maximum number of true pixels but for dynamic range. 18Mp BW sensor - Full Frame - with superb DR.

(or perhaps with a grey filter array - every alternate pixel having a 4 stop grey filter - that would potentially increase the Dr by 4 stops - absolutely awesome!)

Perhaps then Ricoh will follow suit wit a BW module for the GXR ...

Niche product? Perhaps but there are quite a numver ow BW photographers out there who would lust after a decent BW dynamic range.
