This is actually really exciting news, even if the camera is going to cost a pretty penny to get. Leica today announced that they’ll be releasing the new Leica M-Monochrome 18-megapixel full frame camera. What makes it exciting is that this will be a fully monochrome sensor meaning it will only shoot black & white. I’m a huge fan of black and white photography as I was really into the format in my younger days when shooting film. The Leica M-Monochrome however comes at a hefty price of $8,000. As intriguing as the camera is, I’m again not sure I would spend that much on a camera, even if it were a legendary Leica.
