Panasonic GX9 vs GX7 and EM5Mk2

Trying to decide if I should get the new GX9. My local shop has one in (unexpectedly), and I'm looking for a versatile street shooter.

I already have the EM5Mk2 and GX7: got them on promotion or else used. Reasonably happy with them but I wish the EM5Mk2 had slightly faster/better focus (I don't think it has phase detect), and I sort of prefer the more rangefinder style.

I also have Fuji and Nikon: I'm not complaining, but I find different systems are really suited to different situations. I'm looking for good performance to weight/bulk ratio. So, I don't really need a new camera (!) but I rather not let an older camera sit around and lose its trade in value. I'd probably trade in my older GX7.

Main purpose would be street/travel photography, with maybe a bit of portraiture thrown in.

Any similar experiences/thoughts?
