Shrinking NIkonista wonders - what was the verdict on the G85

Folks -

I've been looking into smaller formats as a more convenient travel system than my D7100 + walkaround zoom (plus specialty lenses).  The G85 received very high praise when it came out - and a hearty recommendation from my local pro shop - but surprisingly little continuing discussion on the 4/3s forum to my perception.  It certainly seems like a nice, well rounded, comfortable to use small camera that ticks most boxes. I balk a bit at the transition price for a DX f/4-f/5.6 equivalent pairing ($900 + $900 fast 12-60), but that aside - is the lack of discussion a sign of no problems, the G9 taking up all the oxygen in the forum, or "meh"?

Thanks for your thoughts.
