Thanks for responding so quickly.

Would you recommend some lenses to look at?

If I don't go to FF I'm considering the Panasonic12-35 & 35-100 as from what I can gather they would be better for landscapes than the 12-60 & the 35-100 could do portraits too. Possibly also the 42.5 for portraits & a 15mm or 17mm for landscapes (do you think?)

Since first posting I've had a couple of people ask if I do weddings. I haven't in the past but it's something I'd like to do, knowing I have the right kit!

Thank you kindly.

Lisa -  I think the lenses you mentioned above are excellent for the GX9.  For portrait work the PL42.5 or better yet, the Sigma 56 f1.4.  I think the 42.5 Noc is overkill - and expensive - when either of the other two will do just as well.

Peace.

John
