With Leica having just released the beautiful but insanely expensive M10 Monochrom, there’s a good question why other camera manufacturers don’t do the same. Would you buy a Sony a7M III, a Fuji X-M3, or even a Canon EOS Rm?
I’ve been wondering this myself.
A more obvious (affordable) monochrome camera would be something from Fuji, and there have been rumblings about this in the past. With the compact bodies and slightly more hipster leanings, I’d certainly be tempted by an X30m, an X100Fm, or an X-Pro3m.
My thought has long been that an X100M would be a killer camera. Lots of people use the X100 series for street photography, and a monochrome version would be ideal for that.
It would be a very niche product, but I have a feeling that there are enough people who shoot black and white that it could attract photographers who want the constraint and quality of a monochrome camera.
