Well, the Leica Monochrom is living up to its reputation for exquisite tonal rendering, high ISO capabilities, and sharpness (please see the 100% crop below).
However, it’s also living up to its reputation for requiring a radically different approach to processing files (vs. the M9). So far, I’ve played with only a handful of images, but I’m thinking it’s going to be a long time before I even get anywhere near where I want to be.
This all underscores what I’ve previously written: with a new camera there is often an initial drop in photographic output.
Please bear with me while I sort this out.
