I was wondering if there's any advantage to shooting with one of the monochrome settings vs. converting it in post. Anyone try it both ways and what is your experience?

When you shoot either RAW or RAW+JPG in monochrome with the RX1R II (and, I presume, the other RX1(R) models), the RAW file is always in color. With RAW+JPG, the JPG is monochrome; with RAW only, the the RAW file appears as monochrome in the EVF on the LCD screen but reverts to color once you bring it into Lightroom (and opens in color in a program like Fast Raw Viewer). So you'll always have to do any monochrome conversion in post. Similarly, the JPG is saved in the aspect ratio you've selected but the entire 43 megapixel 3:2 RAW file is saved. When you open it in Lightroom, the aspect ratio you chose is displayed but, when you switch to crop view, you see the full uncropped image.
