The Monochrom is everything I was hoping. Incredible dynamic range and resolution. Since I convert most of my street pics to B/W, this camera was a logical choice.
I'm on the fence about the new M. I have shot tests and I was not crazy about the CMOS look. It's very subjective, but the M9's CCD has a certain magic to it. I have decided to hold onto my M9 for color work.
When you get your M please let me know what you think.
