A Black and White Leica?

Well, LeicaRumors.com believes that an upcoming Leica announcement will be for a black-and-white chipped rangefinder camera.

Now, be aware, that all digital sensors are monochromatic – the Bayer pattern array of colored filters, combined with post-processing, gets you actual color. And while there have been some black-and-white, modern digital cameras out there, there haven’t been that many.

So … I guess this will appeal to a small segment of the small segment of Leica lovers. I’m a little more intrigued by the idea of a screen-less camera, as that could massively affect battery life and physical size.

But I’m guessing this will still cost more than my car.
