Changing from Fuji xt3 to lumix g9 mainly for nature, wildlife and landscape. I need more reach for nature and do not want to buy a longer lens. just a few questions:

1. In order to save time, I’m opting to trade in my Fuji system (at a loss) to keh and buy a used g9 in “excellent” condition. Is this a mistake.? Should I just but a new one on Amazon? Will I be able to get the firmware updated?
2. I plan on getting PL100-400 used and PL 12-60 used. Was also thinking of oly 8-25 and 60 mm macro. Are there any issues using other m4/3 lenses on G9? Does the ibis work with these?

3. Any recommendations for third party batteries?

4. Does anyone use the 6k photo modes? Are the pictures printable?

thank you in advance

1. no not mistake at all... and yes, you will be able to get all firmware updates

2. no issue at all using those lenses on G9... I would just prefer the Pana/Leica 8-18 instead of the oly 8-25 for the pana body (I have all the opthers and more...)

3. stay with the original... I keep now and than testing others, for different bodies...but always prefer the original...yes they are expensive... and avoid the fake ones...if you see the "original" to low prices is because is not the real one... but from panasonic directly...never had a single issue with original ones...but had too many with compatible ones... tored of the end will become more expensive than original...if you really use your system intensely and for long time

4. yes I do that now and then, and yes, they are printable

you are welcome
