Was gonna buy a G9 but just saw a used G85 in a camera shop for $280 bucks. What to do?

I don't print big and the main reason I wanted G9 was dual IS2 and nice viewfinder. Both of which G85 has. Image quality from my beloved GX7 are good enough, except for unfocused mf shots due to crappy viewfinder and possibly shutter shock (I have 2 of the infamous lenses for that). Rolling shutter in silent mode plus field sequential display is queezy-making on GX7.

I'd feel bad if I missed out on the $1000 deal on G9 which might represent the pinnacle of value for M43 though.

What to do?
