Add a G9 to my PL100-400 or...

I have the PL100-400 and have been using it with a GX80.

I was thinking to add the G9 for better C-AF,  EV compensation in Manual mode etc.

But the release of Sony FE 200-600 got me thinking.....

1. Add a G9 for my PL100-400


2. Add Sony FE 200-600 to my Sony A7III.

Some questions about G9+PL 100-400

Other than G9 combo is lighter and smaller than Sony FF+ 200-600 lens,  I'm struggeling with:

* C-AF  PL100-400 is it fast enough for BIF when used on G9 ?

* High iso,  G9 vs GX80/85  Is G9 any better ?

* E-shutter,  is the readout speed fast enough for BIF?

* Other shortcomings with this combo?
