The GH5M2 on dxomark is a good proxy for the G9

Yes, but when I've used that before I got the response 'how do you know...'.

I have both cameras I can tell you it is really pretty much the same. The new GH5M2 has a very small increment of highlight protection default from 0.66 of the G9 to 0.75

Even if you don't trust Bill PDR the curves are practically on top of each other with very small differences this may not make the measurement something you agree but just confirms you can interchange the cameras within reasonable range

Anyway there is no proxy for a 70-200 2.8 full frame lens for an MFT zoom. This is a use case that cannot be matched

Well it turns out that he's telling me that they are the same sensor. I don't disagree, I think that they certainly are, and are set up the same. The same sensor can perform differently in different cameras, depending on gain choices, capture cycles and also the supporting circuitry, particularly power supplies.

For sure but in practice I cannot see major differences on RAW files. I can tell you instead there are significant differences in how the jpeg and video are processed and also how noise reduction works.

Anyway I leave you guys to it for this use case!
