  1. I hope this chap derives every bit as much pleasure in using his Monochrom as I do with my triplet. I have two M4-P and an MD2. The great beauty of Leitz is that if I acquired a Monochrom, I could use the lenses from my cameras on it straight away. I use the 40mm f2 and the 90mm f4 on the M4-P models and the 21mm f3.4 Super-Angulon on the viewfinder-less MD2. Although not planning to go digital and probably never will, I have found the introduction of the Monochrom and the thinking behind it very interesting. I have even read up on the technological side of things. I have used mono for around 14 years now and cannot see a return to colour for me. I have my negs – either Kodak Bw400CN or Ilford XP2 scanned on a disc and look at them on my laptop. My partner recently bought me a Leitz negative viewer dating from 1936. It has a button that punches a small notch in the edge of the frame by the sprocket holes to enable you to see which frame you have selected for printing. I am very impressed with Leitz/Leica.
