Here are some shots I recently took with the Q2M

I like the first one. But the second two, while nice, I don't see such fabulous high ISO ability as the Q2M owners claim. They are about as noisy (not in a bad way) as I expect from my Q2 at those ISO.

They are not high ISO shots. Just more about tonality. I expect, however, that if I spent a bit of time converting a Q2 shot using Silver Efex I would achieve the same. I think that the real benefit of the Q2M is being forced to shoot with only B&W in mind. The marginal differences in file quality are not enough to choose the colour or mono version.

Yes, it's the tonality that really stands out in those shots, especially #1. Having done hundreds of B&W conversions from my Q2, I know that you could not get the same tones and detail in the deep shadow areas. The converted images would look fine but not the same. As I stated previously, the Q2M is for those who care about the differences.
