The whole point of digital is flexibility. The best results you can get is shooting in color first, then going to photoshop to adjust the individual levels in the channel mixer for optimum black and white results.

thanks for your comments.
but my main concern here is the effect, whether is it comparable? understand the flexibility (i dont care much on this, what i like to know is the output quality).

Strictly speaking, it's not. For some specialised filters, there can be noticeable differences. For generic colour filters the differences should not matter much.
