I note that there are many great b&w photos posted in the threads here that were taken with the M9. When I was shooting my Canon and Sony DSLR's, I saw very few posted pictures in b&w. I always shoot in color, but it is clear to me that b&w is a wonderful style. So I have begun to wonder why I see so many done with the Leicas.
Would it be of interest to discuss the relative merits of color vs. b&w when using the M9?
Do you feel that the M9 is a better camera for b&w than other cameras? Is the M9 a better b&w shooter than color? Are there photographers who prefer the M9 for b&w but a different (non-Leica) cameral for color?
I understand that definitions will certainly vary as to what constitutes "better" in my questions above. Please respond with your opinions and additional comments to create a new topic of discussion.
