M11 Monochrom is coming ?

Also, given the specs of the M11, I can't imagine what I would need more than what the M10M and even the M10R already offer now.
New cameras usually mean new accessories, larger files mean more necessary storage for computer and backup, faster computers and sometimes the need for newer software.
As much as I used to (and to some extent still do) always want the latest, I see how little that affects the real goal, the printed image.

I feel like it's getting like a never-ending-cycle now. I still shoot the M246, the M10M seems to be impressive but I still don't see the need for me to upgrade.

I don't get excited anymore since we all know it's Mx, Mx-P, MxM and MxR... A vicious cycle to sucks their customers in 😂

More accurate metering will help me more consistently achieve the end goal. The 28 Lux and many other M lenses when shot wide open have strong vignetting and a central hot spot that can fool the M10M rangefinder mode metering. Even the live view multi-field metering is often fooled, so being able to use central spot metering while using the optical finder will be a nice improvement, IMO. Simply dialing in negative exposure comp didn't work reliably for me since the meter would get the exposure right often enough to make it frustrating.

The increased resolution: for me, the bump will be meaningful but the downsides negligible. Using two other cameras around the 50mp mark (Q2/R5) alongside the M10M for a time, I did find myself missing those extra pixels on the M10M. I think 60mp on a 35mm sensor will be a really nice pixel density for monochrome work.

That's how Leica survives. They are a small company and if they can't keep an income stream by having customers buy various "new and improved" models, they will fold. I'm not suggesting people buy these products just to keep Leica healthy. The quality leaps in digital imaging areas like noise reduction, dynamic range and resolution have been rather dramatic in the last few years. The mechanics have also improved significantly with thinner, lighter camera bodies, quieter shutters and with the M11 more accurate metering.

That said, if you're completely satisfied with your results right now, by all means stick with it.
