Here is everything you need to know about the Panasonic G9, including impressions and comparison, videos.

We think the Panasonic G9 is a direct competitor of the Olympus E-M1 Mark II. (Soon Panasonic G9 vs Olympus E-M1 Mark II – Comparison). The new camera is a good proof of Panasonic’s answer to target still photographers. The MFT shooter is designed for sports and wildlife photographers.
