lets save the debate that you can shoot in color and edit to BW for another day - maybe for another lifetime....

with that aside would anyone here be interested in a pure monochrome mf FUJI ????????

kind of like a monster Lecia monochrome or a" poor mans " Phaseone IQ260 Achromatic back

"The IQ260 Achromatic is missing two important elements of a normal digital capture device; its IR filter and the Bayer filter array. CCD’s sensitivity are extreme. They can “record” much more than the visible spectrum. In order to get sharp imagery, the manufacturer places a “cut” filter over the CCD that only allows the visible spectrum to pass through. The Achromatic, however, only has a clear protective glass over the CCD making sensitive to both UV and near infrared wavelengths. Secondly, a CCD pixel can not record the actual wavelength of light. It is essentially color blind only recoding a charge from exposure to photons. In order to achieve color, each individual pixel has a color filter array (red, green, or blue) and these filtered exposure values are then interpolated with intense mathematical algorithms to intelligently guess at color (CFA Interpolation). The Achromatic has a monochrome CCD. There is no bayer pattern applied, and the result is a pure smooth exposure from one pixel to the next."
