I've had my Gx8's for about 4.5 years, my Gx85 for about 2.5 years, and my G9 for about 2 months. It is an amazing stills camera, pretty closely matching my buddies D500 even for BIF's. But what about video? In another month or two I'll have an in-depth review, but some thoughts: 1. You need more than 10 minutes of fps 60 4K, well then it won't work for you. 2. Need more than 30 minutes with a 1/2 second of interruption to continue, won't work for you. 3. Need any 10 bit and better codec not for you. However, if you need a great stills camera and a camera that can extremely clean 4K video at varying frames rates and did settings with reasonable in camera sound and HDMI and in/out audio jacks with fantastic 1080P stuff, then for the true hybrid shooter this camera will and can work for you. Since I shoot in 4K and produce in 1080p , I now have A,B, C roll cameras that all produce really fine documentary, indy, and serial product. Oh, and did I mention I now have 180FPS 1080P for slow motion as well as 6K that shoots at 30 FPS at what every shutter speed I need (of course its in H265 format so I trans-code to an intermediate codec to work with it). Hoping to do some documentary work this summer on a serialized project to really get back into video and I believe that the G9 will produce some amazing footage. We will see.
