Local camera store (and authorized Panasonic and Olympus dealer) Precision Camera is having a special Panasonic event today and have a special on the G9 for $999. They don't charge tax if shipped out of Texas. Panasonic Lumix G9 Spring Sale I went over and checked it out and was surprised at just how much I liked the G9. Its bigger than the GX85/GX9, but primarily due to the grip. The body itself is quite light and is very ergonomically designed. The grip allows for 2 x UHS-II slots and a much beefier battery.
