Leica M Monochrom: $2000 off, vs the better and Cheaper Alternatives

The original 18-megapixel Leica M Monochrom is $2000 off. It has no Live View and makes beautiful images, if you can get the focus spot-on.

But according to both my eyes and my intellect (real images processed to B&W), even the 24-megapixel Leica M Monochrom Typ 246 is an inferior choice for monochrom to the Canon 5DS R for any reasonable ISO at least (up to 6400):

But wait—that's my finding also with the Sony A7R II and even the Nikon D800E at least matched the Leica M Monochrom—and the D810 is a notably better camera than the D800E.

Are there other sensor qualities that count? Maybe, but from what I see, the original MM with its CCD sensor had the look, and the CMOS sensor in the MM246 does not. So might as well go with a high-res color camera for far more flexible black and white options in tonal relationships, post-shot.
