What about XT-3? Does G9 make better photos?

I would say both are very capable cameras. For most types of photography, you would not have much an advantage in the stills department with one versus the other. The XT3 also has very impressive video specs. However, the main thing that would tip me towards the G9 would be the IBIS, which actually does make a huge difference in handheld shooting situations. That might not make a difference if you were using a gimbal or always shooting on a tripod. And the IBIS actually would help you with stills as well. The G9 also has 180fps (but with no sound or AF) so if you want to do 6x slow motion at 30fps that is nice.

I would say the G9 is a more capable video machine in many respects. I shoot mostly wildlife video so I am speaking from that perspective also, and there may be other situations that I don't have much experience with.
