a camera that only takes B&W is not very interesting

This is precisely why I find it interesting.  It takes color off the table (unless you're *crazy and do something like take 3 shots with red, green & blue filters and then composite 'em together into a color image). Same as using b&w film: you see things differently when you can't use color as a compositional element in your photos. Limitation can be a good thing. Is it worth US$8K when I can load b&w film in my M3 or M6 instead? Haven't yet decided…


*If I ever get a Monochrom I'm definitely doing this!
