Setting to B&W

When, or better yet, why would a photographer set his camera to take photos in B&W when it's an easy process afterward. Does the camera process differ from PC software?

Oh-oh. No answer?

I have a second question also.

Why wouldn't a photographer leave the vibration system on all the time? Is it a bad idea?

Answer to #1, if he's shooting a SLR there is no B&W feature.
Although if he's shooting JPG's on the K100 anyways he can press FN, choose the filters option and the camera will do a conversion.

#2. There are some environments where I'm not too worried about dust happening. Like at the beach.
So why bother with it.

I think I may have made my questions clear as mud.

Q1. Why would anyone purposely set their DSLR to shoot B&W when a color shot can be converted afterward?

Q2. Is there any situations when you would want to make sure your anti-vibration system shut off. (Not the sensor cleaning system)

The only time I turn on the SR is when I have a long lens on. And, according to the users manual, turn it off when using a tripod, it can actually set up its own vibration when mounted.

1 Infrared filters.

2 Antivibration i take it is Shake Reduction? Turn it off when mounting on a tripod. It still shakes the sensor so you lose IQ with it on.

I don't think there is any Pentax DSLR that would let you to do so...
Anyway, some people are not bothered with PPing, so they shoot BW and are happy with how much time they did save...

It would be nice to compose and 'chimp' (check out the exposure/composition on your lcd) in B+W if you know before hand that you want your particular shot in b+w. Sometimes it's hard to visualize your b/w image in color. Did that make sense?
