Should I buy a GX9 as the wife has one?
1

So - following on from this thread https://www.dpreview.com/forums/thread/4327078#forum-post-61791621

The wife owns a GX9. We're off to Iceland in December. She wants me to get a camera for the trip - so we can photograph "everything"

She suggests I get a GX9 as we can share batteries and lenses etc. She sort of knows what she's doing with the camera. I'm clueless.

My only experience with a camera was 20 odd years ago when I had to do 4 weeks photography as part of my Animation degree (I ended up as a software engineer). The camera used film, and had dials on the top. You turned the dials and stuff worked.... no menus to click through... physical buttons and dials make the best UI

The GX9 bugs me a little because stuff is hidden behind menus. Are there any cameras compatible with GX9 kit, with dials? Or, should I just suck it up and buy a GX9 (which is now massively cheaper than when I bought it 10 months ago)

A pal of mine takes photos of the night sky - https://www.astrosite.co.uk/  eventually I'd like to be able to photograph stuff like this too.

Thanks
