Which one would you get for the Panasonic GH5 or G9?

It will be used for both photo and video.

For my G9, I got a Sigma 56mm f/1.4 for portraits and a 16mm f/1.4 for general shooting, including landscapes. The Sigma 16-30-56 trio is excellent.

To answer your question, you should be clear about your usual subject-matters. What do you tend to shoot the most? Street scenes? Events? You might realize that both 30mm and 56mm on a MFT camera are "too long" for most typical scenes. Maybe a 16mm would be suitable for your shooting.

I'm just thinking aloud...
