Went to buy a Pano S1 finished up with G9

I am new to dp review but have been a photographer for over 30 years mainly using Full Frame.

I have a 1DX but wanted to get something more up to date.

I was at the UK Photoshow yesterday and went to look at the Panasonic S1 but after spending a few mins I soon realised it was a large body and quit a  big 24-120 lens, similar to my Canon 1DX and no doubt a great bit of kit, but I then looked at the G9 was very impressed by the ergonomics and the EVF etc.

I know that it's not going to perform as well as the S1 but there is such a great selection of lenses and just the ability to take it everywhere without breaking my back was so appealing.

But the BIGGEST incentive was when the Panasonic rep said................

LCE have a great deal the G9 with 12-60 f2.8-f4 plus 200mm f2. 8 with 1x4 teleconverter and grip with a genuine Panasonic battery for £2299.

To me that was a no brainer.

I cant wait to test it with wildlife and BIF this week.
