Would likely be sorely tempted to finally upgrade from my GX7 to a GX10, but also will be looking at an M1x iMac so depends on how rich I am feeling...
M1 Mac is da bomb. My little MBA M1 is fantastic and never gets hot, though if you are running a desktop maybe heat is not something that matters as much

Because I didn't think it was relative. I am interested in how many folks are looking to upgrade and from what. Manny Olympus owners seen to think that Panasonic will dump M43, but I believe that M43 Panasonic cameras will be around and was wondering who would be in the market for an upgrade. That is the reason. Once the FF folks like Canon and Nikon get a good mix of cameras I think we are looking at the industry going to a 3-4 year release between models, like the G9. If they plan and have some hidden capabilities that are "turned on" with an software update (like the G9) it will make the company more profit per unit because over time the cost of production should come down (used to be called a "cash cow), currently I don't think there are any cash cows). Sony has a lot of older models for sale but perhaps that is just over production.

Well, a G10 would be nice but would consider a GX10 as well for lighter carrying around.

And its probably way faster and runs way cooler than my Intel 8 core i9 MBP that I paid $4k for early last year :doh:

Probably marginally slower and significantly cooler. The M1X that will come out this year will be way faster and still significantly cooler though, so that's what I'm waiting for. Also apparently it will have HDMI out, SD card slots and all that other i/o goodness. Obviously it's all rumours so far, but if they are all true, it will finally be a replacement for my 2014 MPB that does not come with any downsides like losing hdmi/sd card/USB ports/Mag Safe and actual function keys).

What are the limits in terms of MP for Panasonic and Panasonic Lumix lenses. Is this why vintage lenses look different?

I am the happy owner of a GX80. I have had it for over 4 years. It has been to Europe, islands off the coast of Africa, Russia, Scandinavia and China and used constanly. It has not let me down, apart from sometimes getting through 3 of its 4 batteries. I bought it as a kit, but have not really used the 12-32 and 35-100 kit lenses. I found I was constantly changing them over, so bought the P14-140mm. A great everyday carry/hiking lens. I bought the P100-300mm. I then bought the PL15 which is brilliant, probably my most used lens in China. I can happiliy shoot all day with this lens. Wanting a bit wider, I bought the P7-14mm. It has taken some great photos and is great indoors on a tripod, esp in churches, but without a tripod, so used on a carry tripod in a sling/pouch by Cullman from 1976. I use the O60mm lens for most of my macro work. Auto tubes and a Raynox 250, whick is generally carried around with whatever camera and lenses I have at the time. A P20 and P42.5mm, both f1.7 fill in the gaps. I would like a P20mm, but find it too slow. I would like an O75mm, but too expensive. I would like a Laowa 7.5mm f2, but too expensive and I have the uwa zoom. I have tried both 12-60mm’s. I have tried the G9, great evf. And GX9, but found not much benefit to the photographs. If my GX80 faied tomorrow, I would replace it with a GX9 the next day. BUT I AM WAITING FOR SOMETHING BETTER. I have been waiting 2 years for an evolved G9/GX9. No rush. 30mp, joystick, 3 way LCD screen like the S1r. I have too many lenses to jump ship, did I mention my 9 legacy Pentax lenses, Plus the 4 legacy Pentax 110 lenses on adapters and the Sigma 600mm cat. The 18mm and 70mm Pentax lenses on adapters are rather good. Waiting.

I do a lot of macro and find the articulated screen extremely useful. I went the G9's because I shoot at least 40% video and the last software upgrade made the G9 a killer video camera if you don't shoot single camera long events. These 2 G9's should take me another 2 or 3 years and by then everything will be sorted out. Depending on what the Gh6 is I might buy one but that would be the last camera for a long time.

@71 the G9's might even be the last cameras for me:)

Interesting - I do a lot of macro work too but I choose to do it on the GX80 not the G9 because I find the tilting screen is much more intuitive and therefore useful whereas the fully articulaed screen is very unintuitive for me. I guess I don't find that many subjects that demand lying on the ground and composing in portrait mode. Yes some do occur occasionally but I'm happy to use the screen flat not tilted and the landscape mode far outweigh them. I'll make a post in a minute about landscape/portrait.

I talk a lot of landscape images of fossils (no portrait mode images) and when working on a table I often am seated and need the full articulation to seen what I am imaging.

The screen thing is a personal choice, I wish camera companies offered two different options on their pro models- an articulating and tilty options.

Compact rangefinders should only have tilty + portrait IMO.
