  1. M43 should be high end DC, like RX100, for changing lens system, is too much overhead.

  2. I am very excited about this new G9. I had a GX8 years ago. It was one of my favorite cameras.

  3. Wow I didn’t think this was ever going to happen. 😊 happy to see this.

  4. I had a Panasonic Lumix 15 years ago. Loved a lot about it. Size especially good. Image quality not so good. I’m definitely interested in this. I have a good large camera that I want to sell. And I’m going to check out this for sure!

  5. So happy to see this. My beloved G9 has been my companion for about two years now, and I love it more every passing day.
    I think it still holds up perfectly.

    I’m surprised to see the backlit screen on top of the body go away, as that was quite useful.
    Anyhow, I think it’ll be very hard for me to not but this. It just seems like the perfect technical upgrade without breaking the bank.

    Great job to you and to LUMIX!

  6. Shutter shock on these cameras scares me. Sold a whole Olympus kit due to this horrid issue. They tried to fix it with software which was a joke.

  7. I am still a MFT shooter with a G95 and a GX9 but I still figure out one thing. How to shoot with flash on but with the display showing only the preview without flash. What I mean is for the camera to shows only the preview of what the exposure is like based on my setting iff I didn’t turn on the flas. Anyone can help me here?

  8. Ooh ooh! I don’t like the Adobe company’s practices so I am an Affinity Suite user. One purchase, forever license, perfect. But they don’t take Adobe preset files for RAW processing…how much do I need to pay you to create Kodakifying presets for Affinity Photo? 😉

  9. I think it’s safe to sell the GX85 if I have that and the original G9 bodies

  10. Happy to see that MFT is still alive and kicking. These days I shoot with Fuji system, but I have fond memories of shooting with Olympus. It is definately fun system to shoot with

  11. I’m tempted. This looks better than the OM-1 for most people. The AF burst rate is faster at 60 FPS vs 50 (and I think it’s the current winner among all general-purpose cameras), the buffer is larger, the price is lower, and it’s competitive with PDAF, pre-burst, and amazing stabilization. I’m just not sure about the size; it’s a lot bigger than my E-M1 II, which does raise the question of whether that larger size might justify moving to a larger format.

  12. There was a time where people were hesitant to adopt 35mm because of the small sensor size.

  13. I’d appreciate a deep dive into the G9 II’s video capabilities. Thanks!

  14. Great review. I want to love it but are we all dumbed down to the speed of evolution with ‘proper’ cameras? Again another new camera that Cant tempt me away from an iPhone. In the real world photo quality terms does the extra expense, extra weight and bags, justify a marginal image quality boost over the phones in raw? Where a phone can instantly upload to Lightroom cloud, edit on phone, post to wherever, take movies without overheating, and especially how now it’s trendy to appreciate old camera technology because we are appreciating that it’s not the latest tech that makes a great picture.
    I just think that camera tech is evolving at a rate far slower that phone technology and the newest stuff is failing to win back photographers who like me are lazy with their phone cameras.

    Yes for the few that shoot wild life or sports then this would be perfect but that’s still a niche group.

    I think by now in 2023 even an entry level digital camera should be these specs but with even better iso performance {apparently noise starts at 1600}, twin cards, weather sealed, 100 mega pixels, some sort of cellular for instant cloud backups etc and not just on the top ones.
