    Comparison of the Specs: Panasonic Lumix G9 vs. Panasonic Lumix GH5

      Gear

    Yesterday, quite unexpectedly, Panasonic presented a new model of the professional G9 camera. Despite the fact that the camera is not supposed to be a direct competitor of the GH5 model, which is to be perceived more like a video camera, it is hard to refrain from comparing the specifications of both cameras.

    The comparison of Panasonic G9 and OlympusOMD-EM1 Mark II can be found here.

      What we can expect:
      This is a low light version of the GH5. It probably has a new low resolution sensor. This will be a more advanced version of the GH5 with improved video quality, stunning low light performance Higher price tag than the GH5. Same GH5 body December 15 (+ or – 1 day) via 43rumors.com

      Yesterday, Panasonic presented the G9 model – the camera which may become an interesting alternative for the Olympus system, particularly the OMD-EM1 Mark II model. In the table below you can find a comparison of specification of both models. However, it is worth remembering that the Olympus camera has been on the market for more than a year.

      The comparison of Panasonic G9 and the GH5 model can be found here.
