I like to shoot in B&W, and am not a post-production pro, so I shoot RAW + JPEGs in monochrome. This is the only way to review the image immediately after taking the shot in B&W, to judge the tonal balance & contrast and make any pertinent adjustments in density, contrast, etc. When I get home, I convert the RAW (color) images to BW in Aperture.
I suppose a professionally trained eye could shoot RAW (color) only, then see the color shot on the LCD and make judgements about how it would look in B&W, but I dont have that eye ....
