I just upgraded my setup with the new G9. I have several older bodies and thought was the time to upgrade to a new body. I prefer a more SLR style body over other bodies such as the GX8 and others.

If you look at my current setup list I have the following bodies:

GH3

EM1 (older body)

GX8

GX85

GM1

G9 (new)

Lens

Primes

Panasonic 14 mm

Panasonic 20 mm

Panasonic 15 mm

Panasonic 25 mm F1.4

Panasonic 42.5 mm (the less expensive one)

Olympus 17 mm (F1.8)

Olympus 45 mm

Zooms

Panasonic 12 35 2.8 V1

Panasonic 35 100 2.8 V1

Panasonic 45 175

Panasonic 14 140

Panasonic 100 300 V1

Pansonic 7 14 F4

I had GAS when I got these so now I want to better align my kit with the following:

Bodies

Panasonic G9 and GX85 (Sell the other bodies to fund additions to my kit)

Lens

Keep the Panasonic 14,15,20, 25, 42.5 primes and the Panasonic 12-35, 35-100 v1 zooms (Sell the others)

Buy the new lens Panasonic 8-18 2.8 to 4, 12-60 2.8 to 4, and 40-200 2.8 to 4.

That will give me the following:

Bodies: Panasonic G9 and GX85

Lens Panasonic 8-18 2.8 to 4, 12-60 2.8 to 4, and 40-200 2.8 to 4, 12-35 V1, 35-100 V1 and primes Panasonic 15, 25 1.4, 42.5

I do mainly street, family, studio (with strobes), video, and landscape photography. Please give me suggestions and changes you would recommend.

It depends whether you're a photographer or a collector of lenses.  If you're a photographer then you already have all the gear that you need.
