Panasonic Lumix G9 review: The finest mirrorless camera that money can buy


With mighty impressive image stabilisation, an ultra-sensitive shutter, super-fast burst mode, accomplished continuous autofocus and burst shooting,

Huge range of Micro Four Thirds lenses (incl. new 200mm f/2.8 Leica) ensure top image quality ; Massive viewfinder and useful vari-angle LCD ; 4K video and 6K stills modes ; Super-fast burst modes ; Accomplished continuous autofocus ; Pinpoint AF mode

Viewfinder eyecup could fit tighter ; Optional battery grip should offer two batteries ; Smaller LCD screen than GH5 ; Smaller sensor than some rivals ; No 'super raw' with post-focus adjustment (like Canon 5D IV)

The Panasonic Lumix G9 doesn't only step up what mirrorless cameras can do - surpassing even the Fujifilm X-T2 in many areas - it successfully places itself in among the DSLR elite. It's a very impressive bit of kit indeed.

Panasonic Lumix G9 review


The best Lumix so far is a dream for wildlife snapping...

Very fast frame rates ; Small, light lenses ; Rich, vibrant photos ; Bright and clear viewfinder

Small sensor ; Relatively low pixel count ; Large body for a CSC ; Comparatively short battery life

The perfect companion for the travelling wildlife photographer and one of the best compact system cams around

Panasonic Lumix G9 review


Meet the photographer-focused Lumix GH5

6.5-stop image stabilization ; Up to 60fps burst shooting ; Large viewfinder ; Great grip and handling ; Dual UHS-II card slots

ISO range could be broader ; Reduced screen size compared to GH5 ; Battery level not shown as a percentage

Excellent image quality, 60fps shooting, polished handling and a wealth of advanced features add up to make the Lumix G9 a brilliant all-round mirrorless camera and Panasonic's best mirrorless camera to date.

The Lumix G9 seeks the same cachet for stills as the GH5 boasts for video


Panasonic hopes a combination of speed, tonal tuning and body design will tempt serious photographers.

Panasonic Lumix G9 Expert Review


We review the new Panasonic Lumix G9, Panasonic flagship 20mp Micro Four Thirds camera with interchangeable lenses, high-speed shooting, and 80mp high-resolution mode.

The price of the Panasonic Lumix G9 puts it in to the professional area of the market, rather than enthusiastic amateur, and this could put some buyers off. However, there will be those that have the money and are happy to spend it on the camera, once...
