I've demoed the first two generations of the Leica Monocroms several times and just could not get along with them.

I get this "plastic chrome" feeling with many of the results from the camera. Also, the highlights don't roll off - they clip harshly. Very unlike film. I've found that my digital color cameras handle highlight roll off much better due to three different channels clipping at different levels.

I just stocked up on another 60 rolls of Tri-X for my M6. Film is a pain in the ass, but I love the look. Also, It doesn't hurt that my M6's value has doubled in the last 2 years while the M246s out there have halved.
