Agree that G100 numbering don't make sense from Existing lineup. Panasonic hasn't been selling well aside for the poplar G9. The entire lineup is overused for an overhaul.

Gh5/6/S will stay

G9 is a best seller for Panasonic will stay

everything else I think is subject to consolidation or out right elimination. G95, while new, compare poorly against Sony A6400, Fuji XT, Canon M6ii, so I can't rule out it might get the AX

I also think there is too many models. Sony APS-C has just 3: Top A6600, Middle A6400, A6100 for the low~end. Canon eos~m consolidated to just 3 as well: M6ii Top, M50 Middle, and M200 @the bottom.

I suspect G100 = New Direction for Panasonic replacing 1 or 2 combined models.

If you exclude the old models, I don't think Panasonic has too many models. As only the GH5/GH5S, G9, G95, GX9, GX850 are current if you exclude predecessor models.

If you include some predecessor models. It works as the following:

Video:

GH5/GH5S

SLR:

Top G9, Mid G95, Low G85 (Lower G7, which is like A6000 still on sale)

Rangefinder:

Top GX9, Mid GX85, Low GX850 (curiously no longer on sale in USA checking right now, which hints perhaps the G100 might be a successor?)
