Thank you for sharing your high-res photos!

How do you stabilize your EM5ii? Did you carry a tripod while hiking? Or did you stabilize you camera somehow differently?

(I am attracted to the resolution gain for outdoor/nature shots, however carrying a tripod is a big downside for me)

Solid tripod helps, but not required. I use compact plastic tripod when/if I carry one at all. See post here (scroll down): What Tripod Do I Need for High-Res?

Re: Those blues in the sky......

When it came out, one review claimed they eased off the UV/blue filter (on the sensor stack) strength to get deeper blues.

Oly filters out UV on their lenses whereas Panny filters it out on the sensor stack.  That's why Penny lenses tend to have purple blubs on Oly cameras (because neither is filtering out UV) when shooting towards the sun.

Is the image out the camera or did you edit it?

Panasonic always had a thing with blue skies it has always been difficult to get right, I thought the G9 was better or at least that is what I experienced..... could be the multi shot that adds the purple cast?

Yes I did carry my big tripod.  Usually I don't and just find something to sit the camera on.  In this case the tripod was essential for taking multiple shots to stitch together later.

For single shots I would think that any tripod would work even a small one unless you were dealing with strong winds or other source of vibration.  I will probably look for a smaller one myself so that I will carry it more often.

Saw this video on the G9 and thought......

Talking about the G9, I thought you might be interested. Its a lot of talking but what really kept me from walking away was the excellent image, prints examples he showed - He says again and again he sees no difference using the G9 or cameras like the Sony A7RIII..... He concludes that its really all down to which tool is best for you....

LOL, Why wait?...

I use extensively too. Especially landscape with very good success. Especially G9 after latest FW update. I have EM5ii and 2xEM1ii as well and for high res G9 is quite a bit better.

I have posted many on these forums.

Yes, people on these forums are not excited by High Res features and talks more about AF, BIF, low lights etc. I haven't completely or exclusively use M4/3. I have in my bag G9 with battery grip and either A7Rii or A7Riii with battery grip and use adapters which both can share FF lenses.

For me it's a big deal. I have money for A7Riv but decided to wait for G10

Obviously, you're new to these parts (m4/3) irrespective of what gear you own.

Also, I wouldn't count on a G9 successor per se. I think the "G9 successor" will be the GH6.

Cheers.

or something of M4/3 from Panasonic.
