The correct answer is that while your tonal values may be off compared to 
the scene,  for B+W you are probably very safe

B+W is less forgiving, but for the types of images you shoot, a few wrong 
tonalities in a guy's black jacket are not discernible and

Keep the filters for when you sell the camera.... the next guy may be a 
color guy.......

But my use of the M8 is predominantly for B&W as it was with all the M's 
before it. And in the future. So I've not had myself in a knot over the 
problems many of you lads have. IR filters? OK send 'em along just in case. 
But for B&W I don't think I'll need them? So far so good!
