G9 size and looks vs larger format cameras
4

I played with a G9 the other day in a store. I really liked how the camera felt in my hands. But I couldn’t get rid of the thought that it is a bigger camera than the A7riii which was sitting on a shelf nearby and yet a lesser camera in some ways. I played to myself all the right arguments that a body needs to be sufficiently big to be truly ergonomic, that comparable m43 lenses are much smaller than FE lenses (or other FF lenses for that matter), that this camera is less than half the price of the Sony, that the picture quality under most conditions is very good/more than good enough, but... I somehow was not fully convinced. I am still trying to pinpoint what the real problem was... Perhaps it’s the dissonance between the professional camera looks and the small sensor. Not really sure. Is it just me or other people went through a similar thinking process?
