A monochrome sensor forfeits a lot of flexibility in the name of tonality and sharpness. Given the black-dot pimples and sensor bifurcation issues of the Leica M10 Monochrom, the win on tonality is less than clean, so how much does the M10M monochrome sensor buy in terms of sharpness?
This page compares the detail capture of the Leica M10-R to the Leica M10 Monochrom at f/4, f/5.6, f/8. The M10R is presented both in color and in a black and white conversion. Commentary on noise, tonality, tonal differentiation and detail capture.
Includes images at f/4, f/5.6, f/8 at up to full resolution, plus crops.
