just curious of the differences.

Anybody had done some reviews?

I did own a Q2 last year and sold it to help pay for an Sony A1. I recently purchased a Q2M, because shooting in mono adds a challenge, especially when going out on a one lens one camera type of shoot. Finding the suitable compositions with the constraints a Q2M presents really does force me to see differently. That's my excuse, anyway.

As to whether the mono is actually better than the regular Q2, I have noticed a slightly better tonality range with the Q2M, but it is marginal. On the downside, the Q2M blows highlights much more easily than the Q2. In fact, shooting into the sun does cause problems with Q2M files, even DNGs. Will I keep it? The jury is still out for me. The highlight problem is a big issue.

Now we have come out of lockdown where I am, I will have more opportunity to get out and about and use it some more.
