Galleries showcase b/w images of lots of great artists not named Ansel Adams...just fyi....

Have you seen the prices of well made b/w prints made from film ?

There will always be a niche group of photographers who prefer film and those who prefer B&W, but they are a small percentage of today's photographers as evidenced by what's posted on photo sharing sites that cater to serious photographers, like Smugmug for instance. You'll find very little B&W on them.

On the other hand, if you look at major photo exhibitions of famous photographers you will see a strong representation of B&W.

Famous photographers such as whom? And are they current photographers or past photographers? Even Ansel Adams had started to shoot color along with B&W, although I personally think much of his work is highly overrated.
