I'm somewhat convinced that it's not worth to have both MM246 and MD262 to support black and white and color workflow. I'm yet to try using filters, but something tells me that those days are over and I will have to do all the magic in Capture One now. The derived black and white unfortunately relies on all of the color pixels to be lit. If I decide to put a red filter, which essentially makes blue and green to be blind to almost all of the light, I'll lose all the detail. On the other hand, it is nice to make the decision of keeping the color, making a black and white image or a black and white image as if it was shot through a color filter later.
It appears that there are things in life worth capturing in color. I had to sell my Leica M Monochrom to get the new Leica M-D. I enjoy the pure experience of shooting without an LCD screen a lot more, but I miss the black and white workflow with filters and such of the MM246. I guess they have to release the MM without the screen now to make me happy. Leica MM-D anyone?
Another member of my collection is the 50mm f/1.4 Summilux. But that is the story for another time.
This would be my new favorite camera. I'll spend couple more weeks with it and probably write a review. For now, here are a few pictures.
Fuji did it again. This time with X-Pro2. I didn't expect anything less in the color department, but Neopan Acros simulation made me turn RAW off. I'm officially shooting JPG!
