Sony a6400 vs Panasonic Lumix DC-GX9

The Panasonic GX9 is probably the Sony's most capable rival. It has a slightly smaller sensor, but feels better built, has more direct controls and adds in-body image stabilization. It also tends to come with a better kit zoom (and a wider range of native lens choices, generally).

The GX9's autofocus is pretty good, but it can't offer the dependability that we've seen from the a6400 so far. Equally, if you're interested in shooting video, the significant extra crop on the Panasonic means it's noisier and harder to shoot wide-angle with. That said, the GX9's video will be stabilized and it exhibits much less rolling shutter, but is missing not only a headphone socket (as is the case with the Sony) but also any way of attaching a mic.
