Meh, they look oversharpened and smudged at higher ISO.

eastwestphoto: A shame that these phones are NOT available in the USA, and why is that exactly?

Protectionism ;)

racunseen: My smartphone has at least 20% better camera.

The over processing in the smartphone makes it look good, but the raw power is really not comparable.

jackspra: Nice shots.Struggled with the orange hair.

Yes, you should avoid shooting a Donald Trump's meeting with this camera 😁

TBLF: Yeah, that's nice and all, but I won't be buying any of their products and propping up the same company that makes the routers that the NSA has warned us against... Huawei is going to have to go a long way to earn my trust back.

Lol.

jimkahnw: Beyond mentioning the optional eye cup as necessary to supress glare when using the EVF, could the reviewer comment on the quality of the EVF, especially refresh-rate and image clarity? Thanks.

If the GX85 is anything to go by (and I'm afraid it is), the EVF has got very high resolution, but is let down by weird colors, the rainbow effect from the sequential panel, quite poor optics (typical Panasonic), and a dumb 16/9 aspect ratio, making the view much smaller than the magnification number suggests when shooting in native...4/3 ratio.

Jacques Cornell: "What the GX9 ended up being was a GX8 with modest but still important improvements."
Nope. It's a GX85 with modest but still important improvements. One look makes this pretty obvious. It doesn't look anything like a GX8, and it lacks the GX8's gorgeous large EVF, which pretty much kills it for me except as a second camera.

Exactly.

Well, I think it's safe to say :" no sh!t, Sherlock!".

SETI: Hey, Sony, just look at colors!

That's weird. I am a Sony and Olympus user (as well as Panasonic), and I really like Sony colors. They look pretty neutral and natural to me.

Lelitsch: I was a bit torn between selling my Olympus lenses or getting a new small body since the PL5 is getting really long in the tooth. This gallery looks like I might keep them.

By the way, did the noise get better with the new sensor? It looks a bit cleaner.

Nice shots, btw.

The sensor is still the same since Mathusalem. However, the processor is new indeed.

bokehmon22: Honest question. Is anyone waiting for Canon/Nikon to release their FF mirrorless camera. I have 5 Canon EF lens and that's what holding me back.

You can buy an autofocus adapter for the Sony and use your lenses.

santamonica812: What is an "enterprise drive?" (I suspect that everyone in the industry knows this as a matter of fact. But for us laypeople? . . .)

Anyone with a short and clear definition? (Google is no help)

I thought it had to do with Star trek.

jeminijoseph: I had this idea in my mind for a long time. Someone stole it :). Cool for wildlife and sports photographers if they can take heavy lenses..

Probably inception ;-)

Shlomo Goldwasser: The skintones make you look like an alcoholic whose had too much :(

Yes, indeed. Skin tones on my GX85 are awful as well. This comes from the new jpeg engine. On the GX7 and GM1, I never had such a problem. I was hoping Panasonic would fix this on the newer models, but I see they didn't. I'm about to say bye to Panasonic for that, and get back to Olympus. That's a shame since I really like their feature set and autofocus performance.

So that's what I found so annoying about Google images lately! Damn "progress"...

Royal Majesty: The reason for the "deceased" battery life in the GX9 is because the GX9 now has a flash whereas the GX8 doesn't. CIPA Standards for measuring battery life in a digital camera with a flash is that every other photo taken must use full-power flash illumination. Therefore, the GX9 gets 130 non-flash photos AND 130 full-power-flash photos whereas the GX8 gets 340 non-flash photos. DPReview should have explained that.

I would imagine that full-power flash in the GX9 would be consuming around half of the battery power used to make that photo. If so, those 130 full-power-flash photos would consume as much battery as 260 non-flash photos. If so, then the GX9 would actually be getting about 390, or 50 more than the GX8, non-flash photos per charge.

7,4 wh vs 8,7 wh battery on the gx8.
