Interesting point. If I understand the way a sensor works, then it would triple the effective resolution for the same MPs.

K10 has it. But it's not like shooting B&W since you are making grayscale with RGB. It's still color.

Remember, if you do it PP in Photoshop by desaturating it still is a color image and will print using all four CMYK colors. It will try to build a gray. To get grayscale/black and white you must change the mode to grayscale. Anything else is color even if it doesn't look like it.

Best method of getting stunning B&W images is to remove one or more of the RGB channels in post-processing, or at least reduce their opacity over the other channels. This is a simple way of replicating the results of B&W film and filters.

Great B&W shots depend on the blocking of specific areas of the spectrum to enhance contrast. You could adjust contrast after converting a colour image to B&W via a PP program, but it doesn't do it as well.

Correct.

I did this years ago with a pic of the Golden Gate Bridge.

I think I remomoved the red channel or something to that effect which turned the bridge white!

Awesome to say the least!
