Digital B&W is a whole new field that needs lots of trial & error. From what I've done so far, even slightly different scenes/lighting need individual attention.. So many settings available for just 1 shot.

My D750 has so many settings that I'm not aware of many, such as my camera having built-in monochrome filter settings.

But theory and practice makes such settings selections far easier so that they become second nature. For example, if there is a rich blue sky with fluffy clouds then I'd go with a red filter to darken the sky and enhance the clouds.

Somehow, I think unless you have unlimited time for taking and then PP, converting Color to B&W & then PP will suffice maybe 90% of situations..

I agree.

Or maybe just go buy and use a Monochrome, but that surely must still incur all the Filter & other decisions/settings!! .. L

I would like to find a discarded Leica Q2 Monochrom! And yes, color filters might be interesting with that camera.
