G1x Mark iii aperture with zoom and evf lag

hi,

Just wondering if anyone has an idea of the G1x iii fastest aperture at key zoom lengths (equivalent), and how bad the evf lag is at, say, 4fps.

I currently have an EM1ii with the 12-40 2.8 and 12-100 f4 but the G1x appeals as a (jacket pocket) cam when biking / stuff with kids because A) even the EM1ii can seem ‘imposing’ for others - family members just prefer using something like the G1x iii B) some events won’t let in the EM1now (as it is interchangeable lens) C) small lenses that reduce the size (such as 25mm 1.8) are not weather resistant on the Oly D) the G1x iii would fit in my jacket pocket...

So I was just wondering if what the f stop is at 20mm and 30mm, and how bad the evf lag is at lower FPS (say 4fps).

If not the G1x iii I might go for a Sony 6300/6500 with the pancake zoom...

Cheers
