Any thoughts on comparison of these two 60+ MP sensors? Leica M11 vs Sony A7 RIV
Which implies that the Leica M11 sensor might be (as RGB sensors go) far superior to mirrorless cameras in avoiding stripes/banding when making monochrome conversions.
As a potential bonus, Leica could deliver us a Leica M11 Monochrom, which would have the potential of unprecedented detail capture on the 35mm format. And perhaps while avoiding the black dots problems of prior Leica monochrome-sensor cameras?
From what I see and taking pains to force-out problems with aggressive settings, the Leica M11 delivers files of outstanding quality for monochrome conversions. See one example below at ISO 2500 (not aggressive settings, but I tried some).
Any of the aforementioned issues could rear its head with other color subject matter, lighting, etc, but my off-the-cuff impression is of exceptionally high file quality superior to Sony color sensors.
