Should I get a Leica monochrom?
Personally, if I had the funds to grab a Leica camera, I would definitely grab a Monochrom model. Using a Leica is very much about the pure experience of photography, and shooting only in black and white really augments that, at least in my opinion, plus there are some real benefits to the monochrome sensor.
Is the Leica Q2 monochrom worth buying?
Yes, it’s a black & white photographer’s dream camera If you delight in black and white photography, like I do, and hate lugging around additional lenses with you, this is the camera for you. Nothing else on the market can match the Q2 Monochrom’s fixed lens, monochromatic mastery.
Should I buy a monochrome camera?
If your application doesn’t require a color output, and has sensitivity and low light performance as the most important criteria, then you should go with a monochrome camera. It is always recommended to take the advice of an imaging partner before you make such a decision.
Why do people like Leica cameras so much?
Leica cameras are expensive by any measure, but they’re also renowned for their exquisite design, exceptional build quality, superb image quality and unique shooting experience. Over the years, I’ve used and reviewed many Leica cameras from the M, SL and Q series, and have thoroughly enjoyed using them.
Why Leica monochrome is more expensive?
Leica still knows that this camera is for an even nichier niche of photographers than the colorful model. That’s partly why it’s more expensive: Leica’s never going to make up the cost of developing a new version of the 47.3-megapixel sensor via sales or economies of scale.

Leica M11 Digital Rangefinder Camera. Leica D-Lux 7 Digital Camera. Leica V-Lux 5 20.1MP Digital Point and Shoot Camera. Leica Q2 Compact Digital Camera. Leica SL2-S Mirrorless Digital Camera.

The Leica Q2 features a newly developed 47.3 megapixel full frame sensor that captures both richly-detailed still pictures and 4K video in brilliant quality at ISO sensitivities up to 50,000.

That distinction is part of what makes Leica’s new M10 Monochrom camera so interesting. It costs over $8,000 before you add a lens and it doesn’t have the capacity to capture color photos.
Is Leica good for wedding photography?
One of the biggest reasons you might want to use the Leica SL2-s for wedding photography is to use the insanely amazing SL lens system natively. I absolutely love these lenses. The optics are basically perfect, and the build quality of all the Leica APO lenses are of course absurdly good.
Why is monochrome so popular?
It is impactful in its simplicity. Although a monochromatic scale can focus the eye on the complexity of a work, black and white artwork can also be impactful in its simplicity and no artist seems to achieve this more successfully than British fine art photographer David Yarrow.
