alcelc, Panasonic obviously shot themselves in the foot w/ the G95. I thot the G85 was a superb all-rounder. The 95 brought a better sensor, my menu, A-ISO w/ automatic min shutter speed that was based upon lens focal length, better Jpeg processing, etc...

Would have been a winner EXCEPT for the 1.25 4K crop and the availability of a much better camera (G9!) at same price

Yeah, don't understand that move. Almost looks as if two different teams worked on these cameras and communication on market positioning and timelines was not exactly optimal... Or perhaps, the G95 team just overshot their budget.

Bad moves that were irrecoverable/inexcusable in a stressed market

It's not the first time Panny's µ4/3 marketing (think model naming, lack of evolution on some popular lines, etc.) has been found lacking and it unfortunately won't be the last...
