    Serious about still photos, but still keen on a bit of UltraHD videography as well? Then check out the Panasonic Lumix DC-G9LEICA. You’ll be well rewarded. Read more

    The Lumix G9 doesn’t hit the same highs as the a9 but, if you’re scared by the price-tag of the latter, this is a more-than-serviceable alternative at a third of the price. Read more

    • Night mode, Shoulder-mounted information display, 6.5-stop stablization, 0.04-second autofocus, Weather-sealed design
    • Videographic capabilities not as robust as GH5

    Overall, we consider the G9 the best camera Panasonic has made so far, particularly for enthusiast photographers who are mainly interested in shooting stills but also like to take high-resolution movies occasionally. It’s also the best-equipped M4/3 camera on the current market. Read more

    At last Panasonics G9 is a worthy stills camera challenging the big boys and is also capable of great 4K video. I have had the camera for 10 days and have used it virtually every day to see if the hype was correct. This camera has many advantages over Nikon and Canon gear which I own as well. Read more
