Panasonic G9 or Fuji X-T3


I wanted to ask people who actually used both of those cameras for real life experiences as I am really torn. Now I am shooting Fuji X-E3 + 35 1.4 but I have couple of problems with this camera. There is no 4k60p which is a must for me now as I started to do more video. There is no IBIS and although my footage with Crane Plus is really smooth, I don't know if I want to carry this thing for my next holiday with wife and kid. Prime 35 1.4 although takes fantastic portrait shots plus Fuji's skin rendering is really brilliant, but it lacks AF-C speed for my running kid. Landscape shots really require Iridient Developer to bring max detail from this sensor and it's still not as detailed as Panasonic from my observation.

Therefore I am questioning myself if G9 will fit my needs better. My main questions are:

1. Is AFC with lenses like 42.5 1.2 capable of good, fast tracking running kid ? Any other suggestions for portrait lens with shallow DOF ?

2. How is the low light difference. I know that there is about 1 stop gap between m 4/3 and APS-C but when we take into account Fuji's different ISO approach (aka ISO "cheating") is there still significant gap between them ?

3. How is Eye AF working ? Is it capable of fast AFC tracking like Fuji ?

I guess those are my biggest questions. Maybe you can add some additional feelings after the transition ?

Thanks in advance
