I do find that the ability of using LR's almost infinite variety of filters to convert the colour DNG's into black and white images is vastly superior to just using a yellow,green, red.. filter on the lens.
Exactly my thoughts. If I'm going to shoot for B+W with digital I want the flexibility to do bw conversion in post some times even making
multiple bw convertions to different layers and blending.
Also if I'm doing straight B+W I would choose 6x8cm mf or larger film. However nice the 35mm Leica lenses are they are no match for the tilt shift
lenses of the Fuji GX680 and a fine roll of film.
