I'm a GX8 user so this GX9 is a downgrade in so many ways...but even if I was a GX80/85 user, the fact Panasonic continues to use their field sequential EVF, even though every single review criticize it, makes no sense. Sony has a non-field sequential EVF on their RX100 series for goodness sake! What in the world were they thinking?

In my conspiracy theory they are trying to dump the old component stocks to the market. Another alternative is that they have invested in the technology, and they want to minimize the losses. It's probably similar with the 16Mp vs 20Mp sensors. The real conspiracy theory is that they changed their naming scheme for their cameras simply in order to sell old tech to confused customers.
