-Who said there was a filter ?
See the Above.
-CFA is a part of COLOUR sensors, glued or stack, sometimes even behind the photocathode layer.
-"How its stacked or glued on sensor is manufacturer decision" but always part of a colour sensors
-In some cases it is possible to "scratch" off CFA or CFM layers from a sensor, sometimes isn't, in Back-Illuminated sensors for example.
-Monochromes can NOT carry colour information as they are not equipped with CFA-CFM filters
-There are also three-CCD cameras whose imaging system uses three separate charge-coupled devices (CCDs)
-Always thought of Leica's as very stylish but extremely expensive of what they could offer, cameras.
-Technically CFA is a part of all COLOUR sensors, how many sensors can you count without one? (except of course, the monochromes)(.....and the Foveon sensor )
-Never said RGB filter is the same thing as the sensor but a part of it on all colour sensors, giving colour information.
-Who said that you said about "no colours for post editing" ?
-I don't remember writing anything about Leica or Zeiss lenses
-And 'of course' i wouldn't agree more on "...better colour means better colour editing possibilities" which was at first place my main comment
veroman: Until one actually owns a Leica digital, one is really in no position to judge its worth or its capabilities. It's so very easy to denigrate the brand based on price alone and even easier to conclude that other cameras are just as good at a fraction of the price. One poster here says, "Is it better built? Probably." Probably? There's no probably about it. The precision that goes into the design and manufacture of Leica products is unequalled. You need only hold one in your hands and give it one click. Look at the seams, i.e. where a latch door meets the body. The seam is practically invisible. Most of you will own 10 or 15 different cameras by the time a single Leica needs servicing, if it does at all.
My friend the price this camera costs is like owning 10 to 15 different cameras
-It is cutting colour information, RGB filter is giving you, unless you only shoot B&W or you have a back up Nikon D4s for the coloured ones.
-There are No Colours for post-editing, unless you never colour edit you photos before printing (in this case i totally respect your skills, which i doubt).
-Back during the film days Leica could cost as much as CanoNikon (i don't remember prices from that "era", i used to have a Nikon F 501 which was a really great camera), now days Leica is only selling brand name and MAYBE sharper images, nothing more.
@HRI agree the image quality is excellent ........ but for a € 1500 camera.If Leica doesn't have any kind of trouble selling those bodies, that's good for Leica, but in my humble opinion it's a little bit pointless to cut off information from a sensor.

Petrogel: Imagine how many people will ask for their money back, when they'll find out that their new shiny Samsung S6, is equipped with a photo sensor different to the one DxoMark ranked on top place on the mobile image quality list.
I'm sure Apple people are already smiling .
@TrojYou on the other hand are helpless, no matter what account you are using to comment
Yeah!!! cause in any other case the "different" sensor might score higher, and the Samsung S6 will be the first Phone Camera to win itself in the next DxOMark sensor ranking.LOL
or iPhone 6

Petrogel: Together with the remote control patent, the magnetic solution lens holder patent , the light field -like imaging system patent and who knows what's next patent, i believe Apple "will use this patent to sue anyone who'll design anything else about mobile devices.And maybe one day Apple will patent photography itself
Correction, During the 2000 "COMDEX" Microsoft introduced that tablet prototype .
I know, just like Apple copied iPad from Acorn Computers, an ARM-based touch screen tablet in 1997 or the Microsoft when used the term tablet in 2000 for a prototype "COMDEX" a Tablet PC or in 2001 when Ericsson Mobile Communications introduced a similar device. Now who "patents" whom ?
First thing firstThe fact you took time to read the whole thread to defend a prick, is idiotic by itself but i'm sure you are a qualified for it
SecondThe "penguin " calls himself south pole inhabitant, not me.
ThirdLike it or not , What i wrote about Apple is my opinion, Now go and play with other idiotic trolls like yourself .
Great photos poetic landscapes, Outstanding work !!!!!!!!
For sure i was not raised by emperor penguins, as i'm not Antarctica's inhabitant. It's interesting tho you care so much about Greece's Economy, but you are as ignorant as a ....... penguin
I need to explain to you ???The troll ?? ROFLMAO
So you are a penguin from Antarctica commenting on DPreview ?
-And i'm the one with the problematic " entire system"?
