Lumix G9 In 2021

Lumix G9 In 2021

5 Reasons I got a Lumix G9 moving into 2021

The Lumix G9 come out late 2017 and was the flagship photo centric camera in the Panasonic Lumix line-up before they released the full frame range in late 2018 early 2019.

Now moving forward into 2021, the question is? Is the G9 still worth picking up for keen amateurs & semi professional photographers like myself. Here are my top 5 reasons I picked one up!

1: PRICE – In Australia you can pick one up on sale new for as little as $1500 & on the second hand market as low as $890 & that is a lot of camera for the price.

2: Micro 4/3rds Mount – Being a micro four thirds Mount/Sensor the Lumix G9 has a HUGE range of of lenses that are small & compact & come in many different focal lengths – Not only from Panasonic but ALL Olympus lenses fit the mount too, making the lens choice very diverse and as I’m heavily invested in micro 4/3rds it made sense for me.

3: The Sensor – The G9 Has a effective 20.3 megapixel CMOS sensor that produces amazing JPEGS in camera & also shoots detailed RAW images onto a TWIN SD card slot. With the ability to shoot 80 megapixel images the options are endless for great looking photos.

4: Image Stabilisation – The G9 has incredible stabilisation built into the camera – 5-axis Sensor-shift Image Stabilisation to be precise & paired up with a Lumix Lens with its own stabilisation gives you amazing hand-held options for shooting stills in low light.

5: Display – The G9 has a super clear EVF with a resolution of 3.68 million dots giving you ta great reference of your exposure in camera as you shoot & with the fully articulating flip screen composing shots from all angle is a breeze.

Now thats only my “Top” 5 reasons for purchasing Lumix G9 in 2020/21, there are WAY more cool things like how the camera is fully customisable with programable function buttons, the 20fps burst mode, the great auto focus & how WELL the G9 is built in its quality! I could go on & on…

Let me know what you think? Do you think its still a great camera for photography in 2021? How do you think it compares to all the “New” releases?
