If size matters more than resolution you’ll be alright.

if you want the best autofocus then you’ll have to comprmise on bidy sizensince bith panasonic G9 and Olympus om-d e-m1 mkii are quite bulky.

Sony a6500 offers better size and certainly top notch af in Addition to better iq and gigher resolution.

as for the lenses, there are bith in sony’s and fujy lneup sone fine choices.


I have an a6500. Nice camera. Not happy with the lens choices and lens quality (other than buying full frame full price G glass).

I'm okay with 16mp. High Res mode sounds fun but not reliable, eh? Okay. Good to know.

So the G9 and the E-M1 are significantly better than the rest of the MFT lineup in terms of autofocus?

Definitely yes

Okay, that could be the deal breaker right there.  I'll carry some extra size and weight for a clear performance advantage.

Now I need to find some objective tests and comparisons....
