But the great thing about a mono only camera is it takes B&W to a new digital level.

“To convert a camera to monochrome, we take the camera apart, remove the sensor, remove the sensor coverglass which is epoxied to the ceramic package then use special equipment to remove about 5 microns from the surface of the sensor removing the microlenses and the Color Filter Array,” company president Dan Llewellyn tells PetaPixel. “This exposes the bare photodiodes so that all the pixels see the same light.”

I wonder what kind of effect removing micro-lenses would have to the final image, especially anything wide angle.

I am also curious about how that would look with a WA like the 21SA whose rear element is so close to the sensor...

I wonder if they would do a Leica M8...

Doesn't the combination of ACROS film simulation with the X-trans III sensor + X pro processing unit make this discussion moot? Incredible results from what I have seen.

Good point. I prefer the jpegs tbh. Don't really enjoy tweaking photos in post.
