I currently have a Gx85 and 2 gx8. One of the Gx8 will leave when I order the G9 (probably February). Here is why I think of my camera gear as an imaging system. I bought the Gx8 cameras when they first came out knowing that the only downside would be continuous AF for BIF. I figured that out and get 6/7 out of 10 images with eyes sharp now. But I really bought the Gx8 as a rangefinder city/town/landscape type camera - at which for me it is a brilliant imaging platform. The Gx85 is my travel camera and it is superb for me as a travel camera when the travel is not a photo trip. I shoot with other wildlife photographers and find that the Gx8 is a step or two behind when handheld, but when I use a large video tripod (as 4k video is important to me) with good fluid head and have IS turned off, I get very good images. I think the G9 would add true value and would probably have my 100-400 attached almost all the time. Also the 80 mp for landscapes would be very useful. This is a very expensive camera, $1200 was about the edge of my comfort zone when I got the Gx8 cameras (I had just sold my Nikon gear and had lots of cash), and now I happen to be in the position to pay cash in February. I will be watching the reviews and seeing any special deals.
