A new page, perhaps a new chapter in black and white photography. In some months I will have to reconsider how to deal with all the M models. But for now, the Leica M Monochrom share so many features with the Leica M9 and Leica M9-P (metering, body design, menus, etc) that this will start out as part of this Leica M9 article
Note the photographs themselves were not necessarily taken in 2012, they just happened to be featured as a POTD this year. The pictures are also listed in reverse chronological order. There is no ranking amongst the photos :).
