  1. I don’t really see the point of this camera. I think the coolest thing about digital black and white photography these days is the fact that you can mess around with how each color shows the different shades of black, white and gray. If you really wanted a Leica “true” black and white, couldn’t you buy a cheaper one like the M9 and just desaturate all the colors later? Or just buy a film camera. I just think that this is a waste of money and the only people that will buy this camera is Leica snobs or people with to much money to waste.
