Re: Here is a few from today's street shooting session (60mm & 18mm)

If you really like "deep" black and white conversions with a wide tonal range the only way to do achieve so is using RAW. The images you posted look (for my taste) flat, overexposed and with a very narrow latitude between highlights and shadows, basically no info in between.

This link is to Steve Huff´s blog and one of his pictures with the Leica Monochrome. This example shows how deep and rich BW can be:
