Re: G9 smaller alternative

Absolute lowest weight package with viewfinder is GM5/12-32. GM5 is 16mp and a cult camera that carries a premium these days. I have this pair but find it too small for my aging 6' 3" hands.

Of the Panasonic bodies I still own, the next lightest kit would be the GX85/12-32. Again 16mp but has a viewfinder. Next to the G9, it's quite small and compact. Viewfinder is on the small side but it's adequate. Personally, I'd pair the Lumix 12-60 with it, but that lens is bigger and a little heavier than the 12-32. It depends on how critical weight is to you right now.

I have and use a G95 that usually paired with the 14-140ii zoom. The G95 is a 20mp camera. It's smaller that the G9 (which is my main m4/3 body) but handles very nicely and has the newer 20mp sensor. Definitely less weight and bulk than the G9.

Good luck. You'll not be short of advice on this thread.
