Re: G9 or M1.2 ?

I went the 2nd G9 route.  My personal reasons are:

-  The G9 is the best camera I have ever owned.  I don't notice its size at all because it just seems to fit my hand perfectly.

-  There are so many programmable functions and buttons I rarely need to access a menu anymore.

-  As a travel backup I find it really sweet to have both bodies use the same charger, battery etc... and both having the exact same setup.  If I do adjust functions or button assignments they can be synced easily via the saved setup on the SD card.

-  The only nitpicks I have with the G9 are the slightly awkward location of the joystick and the operation of the front mode selector switch which I find too small and requiring to much effort to move.  As I said, nitpicks.

- My travel lenses are now the PL8-18, the Oly 12-40 and the PL50-200.  For the range they don't take up a lot room nor are they too heavy, and all perform excellently.

All that being said, the M1.2 is pretty tasty by all accounts so you will end up with a fine camera either way.
