M Monochrom

The Leica M Monochrom is a new 18MP, full frame, black-and-white-only digital camera.  The sensor was designed from the ground up as a black and white sensor.

Per Leica, “As the sensor does not ‘see’ colors, every pixel records true luminance values – as a result, it delivers ‘true’ black-and-white images that are significantly sharper than comparable exposures from a camera with a color-sensitive sensor.”

The Leica M Monochrom should be available in July 2012 for $7950.  Check B&H Photo for availability.
