Help picking my first camera!!!

Hiya, first day on the forums, I have been browsing a lot.

I am torn between these two cameras mainly - Fujifilm X-T200 and Lumix GX9

My reasons for liking these are


  • Love the design
  • Fully articulating screen
  • No 4k crop - am keen on wider shots
  • Good hybrid
  • Within my budget and can buy in my country
  • Like the quality and the colour profiles


  • Very very compact
  • IBIS
  • Also love the design
  • Good hybrid too
  • No film limit with 4k

I was initially keen on the GX85 as it was more affordable, but comparing the quality with gx9 I felt it looked considerably worse - stabilisation, sharpness, AF etc. Is this imagined? Is it worth getting gx9 for almost double the price?

I would be mostly doing travel/vlog style things with occasional landscape/natural photography but I am not super fussed on photography other than hoping to get wider and sharper than my phone.

I guess the main questions that'd help me choose from cons are;

Has anyone found the X-T200 to be too unstable in film without IBIS?

and Is there any workaround of the nasty 4k crop in Lumix?

Your advice or recommendations are much appreciated!!! Thank you
