Luke Miller we all know it ... but what matters is the file at the end, the gray scale is not infinite and does not cover 14 bits, a sensor color has enough informations to get the gray scale that you get  in mono sensor ... bayer or not

In images from the M-246 more light reaches the sensor and each pixel in the sensor maps directly to a pixel in the image. The result is improved dynamic range


But is it?  I get blown highlights where I wouldn't expect them.

 I do also if I am not careful.  If outdoors in full sun I maintain -.7 EV exposure compensation.  That preserves the highlighhs on my body..  The Leica metering is pretty basic, so the Monochrom user needs to be more careful.  I don't think that says anything about dynamic range.

Dynamic range is different than exposure latitude.
