G100: an almost perfect camera for street photography
3

I've seen lots of negative reviews for G100 as a vlog camera, here are my points why it might be a good camera for street photography:

1. Lightweight: 340g is not heavy at all, compared to other M43 cameras

2. EVF: from the Spec it looks better than the one on GX7/GX85/GX9

3. Shutter: from its Spec it's similar to the one on GM5, which is quite, I know the shutter speed doesn't go too far before it switches to e-shutter, however for street photography it's enough.

It might not be a good vlog camera but it ticks several boxes in my opinion to be a good tool for street photography. I made a video as well:

I don't recommend buying it now because the price will go down over time, this is especially true for Panasonic cameras based on past experience.
