Urgent: Leica Q Question

The Q arrived yesterday. The AF is quite amazing and the EVF is very good, better than my Fuji X-T1 for sure. I am putting it through a series of tests which probably only relate to me but there is one thing that has me stumped.

I like to shoot B&W but with RAW+JPG. It appears that the Q will not allow you shoot this way: That is to say with the JPG in B&W and DNG with full color data AND, most important of all, what you view while in this mode is B&W in the EVF and the back screen monitor.

To make sure you understand my question. Is there a way for the Q to shoot RAW+JPG and display only B&W in the EVF and LCD while shooting?

This is extremely important to me and could be a deal breaker.

The ability to 'see' the shot is more important than the gear used to capture it.
