doesnt work, look at L1000262-DNG for example, everything is the same shade of grey and subject is lost in the background. Look at B/W photography (especially movies) from the 1940s-50s and see how gorgeous the images are. Those movies all made use of color filtration in conjunction with the native color response of the film to get the compostion across. Unless Leica can match that this is a useless toy for the filthy rich.

Reminds me my first experience with photocamera. I had no idea that time about filters and how to use them or possibility to enhance scanning results in PS. Needless to say that pictures were boring in tonality and separation...

that's right see my post, that's what you get from only the luminance channel, no weighting from RGB. Has no resemblance whatsoever to B/W film photography that defines the medium.
