I?m afraid that AccuRaw Monochrome won?t bring the same amount of 
improvement to a Leica Monochrom as it does to e.g., the modified D800 in my 
blog post. Conventional raw processors, e.g., Lightroom, ACR, Capture One, 
the normal version of AccuRaw, etc already understand that the Monochrom 
doesn?t need to be demosaiced. AccuRaw Monochrome will probably show some 
improvement because of its dedicated monochrome processing pipeline, but it 
will be less than what you see for the modified D800.
