"The introduction of the Leica M Monochrom has raised many questions and comments from a diverse range of sources. On the positive side people attest the camera a sharper image than the RGB-images made with the Leica M9(-P), lower noise and higher useable ISO values. Leica photographers prefer black and white, are obsessive about sharpness and like to take pictures in low ambient light, loathing the use of flash. The Monochrom seems to be designed to address these demands. One renowned Leica photographer even argues that the Monochrom will end the conflict of choice between color or BW, because the Monochrom only has BW so there is no choice. This is a peculiar argument: with any digital M camera you can pre-visualize in black and white, make the picture in RGB and process in Silver Efex Pro, DxO Filmpack or any of the other specialized conversion programs to create a monochrome image.
First reviews of the prototype camera note that the main argument in favor of the Monochrom is a psychological one: loosing the ability to shoot in color forces the photographer into a discipline that visualizing and and shooting in black and white provides. If this argument were correct one would see a digital version of the Zone System soon.
The second (and mostly hypothetical) argument in favor of the Monochrom is the alleged high resolution of the sensor, some claims even putting the gain in resolution to 100%!
The reviewer in the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung (FAZ) points to a curious contradiction in the Leica strategy:"
