on the face of it it does seem like a silly idea but maybe by creating a sensor which processes tonal range rather then colours a better image could be captured.

who knows but it would be interesting if they did

I mean there is already no AA filter in the M9, so there will be no increase in sharpness from a color filter being added.

The problem is that without the color channels you can really not work with the file, even if your final result is going to be B&W. Programs like Silver FX Pro need the color information in order to create the stunning B&W conversions it does.

I am unconvinced that this is a good idea.
