Its the best 4/3
If you are reading this, then maybe you are like me. You've tried every 4/3rds created and all the 1" in the last 5 yrs trying to find the magic one.... = The one that will "Do- AP-C" likeness. Ok, stop looking, as this camera, the G9, with a prime lens, is the closest you will get to that elusive g...

One is the Lumix G9. Great stabilization, great kit lens, 4K videos and a lot of cheap really good lenses. I was pretty sure I would buy this one until I thought of the Canon EOS RP...which does not have 4K but has a full frame sensor instead of a micro 4/3...but the lenses are like crazy expensive...please help me out if you can!. Also I should add, I shoot mostly portraits, a bit of street and landscape and videos for YouTube (not vlogs).

Overall a great camera that makes photography exciting
The features and steep price won't make you a better photographer, but they sure do make taking pictures and videos that much more fun. Upgrading from a GX85 - I was a bit skeptical that the significant price increase was not worth the few upgrades, but I am pleasantly surprised. Love the OLED (hate...

The body is great, lens not so much.
5/5 for the G9 body. One of the bigger M43 cameras no doubt, but it handles well, has amazing stabilization, makes great images (for the format). The kit 12-60mm F2.8-4.0 Lens lens however is disappointing. For a lens of that price, I expect both technical excellence and 'good enough for photos'. It...

Panasonic Lumix G9 review 4k movie quality
This handheld, with the like a 200 millimeter using the high speed video mode in 4k. 60P, if you prefer to speed things up the g9, like all Lumix G cameras, features, stop motion or time-lapse video options with the chance to keep the stills and encode the results. At a variety of quality settings, this is a king Tarley from Brian's chilli pickle, only a tenner on Monday lunch times film, with the 8 to 18 millimeter and output in 4k

Panasonic G9 Hands-on Review with New V2.0 Firmware
If that ever comes about and becomes a thing yeah, it still has kind of that wobble, which is the only thing that i really don't like about the overall experience, but i think once you get used to it and you begin trusting it then you'll see that The results are really good and at the end of the day, that's kind of all that really matters. Of course we want to know. What do you guys think? Do you think this firmware update makes the g9 a really compelling option?

Fast autofocus!
I have an Olympus OMD EM-5 and was looking to upgrade based on some of the features and early reviews about fast auto-focus and the 4K video. I haven't used the camera a ton yet, but did take a number of photos and videos of my son playing basketball and baseball. The ability to select stills from a...

Sony Ecosystem vs. Panasonic S5
- As I mentioned, you *really* want to use Panasonic lenses with this. Unless you've got money to burn, I'd highly recommend the 24-105 f/4 lens to start.
