Hi folks, Here in sunny (which makes a change) UK there are some pretty good deals to be had on both G9 and E-M1.2 - the former being available with £300 cashback, the latter with a free HLD-9 grip. That, whilst making a change more tempting, isn't the whole reason to go for one of these - the change from my beloved E-M1 Mk1 would be made to gain slightly better IQ from their newer sensors, and of course a boost in all-round performance. I had a play with a G9 at a show late last year, and loved the feel of it - as I do the E-M1. The G9 would work out cheaper (not bother about its grip - it's too big imho) but Olympus do seem to have a much better rep for after-care, especially in the longer term. A short list of important stuff, and what I'd hope to achieve by upgrading: 1. Improvement in IQ, even if it is slight. 2. Better low-light/high ISO performance - and better DR. 3. Quicker focus in S-AF. 4. Better IBIS - I have the Panasonic 100-300 II so can take advantage of the G9's dual IS. Stuff which doesn't really matter: 1. I rarely use C-AF and burst speed/capacity is of no real interest. 2. Video - have never used it, not even once. My other kit includes a Pen F which, whilst it's subtle, does have a slightly better - cleaner - IQ than the E-M1 Mk1. Glass consists of O12-40 Pro, P20-1.7, Sigma 30-1.4, O45-1.8 and the P100-300 II. Upgrading wouldn't be cheap (thinking around £800-1k to make a change) but is affordable - I'd just like to think it's worthwhile and really appreciate any input from folks who've made the same leap - be it to the E-M1.2 or the G9. Or just spend it on posh glass. Thanks all.
