The Q2 in its b&w mode cannot remove the color filter array that is bonded over the sensor. Therefore, the firmware or software must combine the value at the green pixels with the values at neighboring red and blue pixels to get a b&w tonal value. The Q2 Mono camera has a full tonal value at every pixel.

On other hand, when you post process a Q2 raw image, you can weight R, G, and B to get a b&w as you find best for the particular image.

Arguments about the pro and con go on forever.
