By Herr BarnackThis is an old-ish (5 months) review, but IMHO it is worth reading if you are on the fence with regard to purchasing the M10 Monochrom.
This camera costs a lot of money, but make no mistake: There is no other camera even remotely like it being made anywhere in the world.
Hands-On Review of the Incredible Leica M10 Monochrom
By TheGodParticle/HariMost of us seem to be photographers as well as collectors.
Show me your favorite lenses, old and new alike.
I like the Noctilux range for the extreme apertures, but I prefer the Summilux range for the best speed:size/weight ratio.
Here’s a Summilux gathering of 21, 24, 28, 35, 50 and 75mm. All in black.

By flipsa00I had my heart set on getting a used Noctilux 50MM f/0.95, but I also found a used Noctilux 75MM f1.25.
I wanted the 50 because I regret selling my Summilux ASPH 50MM - I really miss that dreamy/creamy look! The 50 Noctilux could be a suitable replacement, with an extra stop to boot! The "more usable" focal length is another plus.
On the other hand, the 75 is appealing to me because it is a more modern lens with less CA/purple fringing, less vignetting, and a sharper look. I also don't have any 75MM yet. I shoot a lot of portraiture, but admittedly it's more environmental, so not totally sure if 75MM would be the right FL anyway. Still, I think I could make use of the 75.
Any thoughts on which one would be "better," all things considered? Do I get both?!
FYI - I am shooting on an M10 and also have a 50 APO and a 35 Lux FLE.
By Herr BarnackI just now happened to stumble upon this essay on the M10 Monochrom which is accompanied by a nice set of sample images.
In thinking about the concept of a black and white only digital camera in general and about the M10 Monochrom in particular, I was smitten with a thought that I cannot shake free of: The M 10 Monochrom may well be the pinnacle of the digital M camera.
It is going to be an awfully hard act to follow. If anyone can best the M10 Monochrom, it would have to be the gents and ladies of Werzlar.
