I'm sold only if...

I'm sold only if the b&w image would produce a wide range of greys ala 12-15 zones from solid white to solid black.

But keep in mind b&w film like tri-x or t max are not colorbind film. Different color wavelength would respond differently. They still "see" different colors but just don't reproduce them.

Also like ppl mentioned before, from a pure grey scale image you may lose the ability to fine tune contrast between different colors from the original scene. They might just show up as the same grey. Filters (glass) can only do one correction at a time.

I generally like the b&w only concept as I am a long time b&w shooter doing my own darkroom work. I really want to see the next gen sensor to have the wide DR and exceptional sharpness to it. Not to mention cleaner hi iso.
