No blackout free viewfinder (with live view)
4

Panasonic gave in his press release the impression, that the G9 view finder is a blackout free finder. As this feature is known from the Sony A9, it was a surprise that Panasonic apparently could build similar feature into its new flagship.

Unfortunately, it was just a marketing plot. Something without blackout is only available as a playback of the last taken image at the super highspeed modes with 20 or 60fps. In single exposure modes or the lower speed modes with live view, there is no thing like lack of blackout.

So, the G9 finder is far away from the A9 finder, which isn’t clear from Panasonic’s own statements.
