G9: Grip dimensions and can high resolution mode be used for portraits
1

I'm now leaning toward a G9 for my next camera. Not wild about the size but it can do everything i want. I was curious about the grip dimension. My Minolta 5d is like 2.8 " grip and its a touch too big. Same weight though. What is the grip size on the g9?

Also would high res mode work on static portraits? Id love to be able to get super high resolution images of faces to get inner skin pore details. I do digital art and its hard to get good references for peach fuzz and pore shape. There is an artist named https://www.danielboschung.com/ who has incredible super zooms portraits available. I don't need to go that intense but its always would be a nice thing.

The only other camera that really comes close seems to be the XT4 (not sure if the dials would slow picture taking down and its rather pricey now and no high res mode) and the OM D 1 Mark 3 (pricey too with a complicated menu and limited touch screen functionality)

Panasonic Lumix DC-G9
