  • Very few shades of grey in these pictures. Contrast is far too extreme and many of the shots are just ugly.
    I assume the images have been processed to accentuate the contrast but they don’t do much to sell the camera.

    • You my friend didn’t listen anything that was said and didn’t look and anything that was shown.

  • I have to agree with the previous comment, the images appear incredibly over processed, a Monochrome version of the over saturated faux HDR that was so popular a year or so ago.
    A very poor advert for the camera.

  • I agreed with the two previous comments. Not a good advert for Leica monochrome. All this pictures are over processed with Silver effects and is not a real help to buy the camera. Respecting the work of Jacob I think that we deserve another information about the camera. Is Leica trying to sell this camera to the photojournalists or maybe rich people?. With the range of cameras in the market is more accurate and cheap to buy a camera and get the Silver effects instead of pay such amount of money. Leica please do the things in the right way.
