Black and white software:
Silver Efex Pro from Nik Software - stand-alone software or as plug-in for Lightroom and Aperture. The de facto standard for converting color pictures into black and white. Nik Software offers a 15 days free trial and charge 200 Euro for the software which only works for Aperture and as stand-alone. But B&H Photo Video sells it for 149$. So try it at Nik, buy it from B&H.
An even better deal at B&H Photo Video is the Complete Collection for only 199$ including Silver Efex Pro, Dfine, Viveza, Color Efex Pro and Sharpener Pro.
True Grain is another black & white software from Grubba Software which can emulate Kodak Tri-X 3200 and other black and white grains. It's a stand-alone software for only 50$ though they offer a trial version that works unlimited, except you cant save your results.
Free Lightroom Leica M9 camera profile from ChromaSoft. Since Lightroom 2.6 you really don't need this anymore as the Leica M9 now has a profile with CameraRaw/Lightroomae.
