Panasonic pleasantly surprised us last week when they dropped off a near-final version of their new Lumix DC-G9 flagship stills camera. There's obviously a ton we want to test out, but in the meantime, we were eager to get it out and about for some initial sample shooting. Watch this space in the coming weeks for more images under a variety of situations, including some peak-action sports. For now, take a look at what it can do in low light and a rare sunny afternoon in otherwise wintry Seattle.
