My main camera is the Monochrom.

How do you like it? I've been tempted by a Monochrom or a monochrome converted camera. Though considering I still use cameras with AA filters and I'm happy with how sharp the images are and how the b&w rendering is, I probably won't ever really pick one up.

I think the Sigmas do a sensational job producing B&W pictures if you just use the top layer. I like the B&W from my 15mp Merrill better than those from my 24mp Nex 7.


Yes - but not for low light etc. One benefit of removing the CFA is that you get much better high ISO performance. First you gain about a stop of sensitivity (the CFA blocks about a stop of light). Second you get a more "organic" grain pattern.

FWIW for high ISO monochrome images, I love the Ricoh GXR. Sample photos here:
