Our first review of the Panasonic Lumix G9II

This year there's simply a reason for Panasonic fans to celebrate, as their system cameras have been around for 15 years and they're celebrating with a new Lumix G9II. This camera is a welcome successor to the G9 and you'll find out why in the article below. But in the end, we have a few more novelties and news.

The new G9 body and its form factor

The G9 Mark 1 enjoyed a great deal of popularity as an MFT camera. Its weight and size made it the perfect camera for travel bags and more for most photographers. Its successor, the Lumix G9II, is now in the body of the Lumix S5II, which of course means that the camera is larger, but it essentially has advantages that benefit the camera.

The components of the S5II in the G9II

So the G9 II has inherited the following components from the S5 II:

  • same viewfinder
  • same display
  • same connectors
  • same button layout

This has many advantages: Especially if you work with several cameras at the same time and have to switch between them quickly, then you can get to all the setting options without having to get used to them and you are also used to the same image quality of the viewfinder / display. A not to be neglected advantage is of course also given by the same connections, because you need the same cables and so you can either save cables or, albeit blindly, reach into your pocket and the cables are compatible with all cameras, which is also very helpful in stressful situations.

Also feel free to read or check out our review / introduction of the Panasonic Lumix S5 II, which we published in the past.

  • same display
  • same connectors
  • same button layout

This has many advantages: Especially if you work with several cameras at the same time and have to switch between them quickly, then you can get to all the setting options without having to get used to them and you are also used to the same image quality of the viewfinder / display. A not to be neglected advantage is of course also given by the same connections, because you need the same cables and so you can either save cables or, albeit blindly, reach into your pocket and the cables are compatible with all cameras, which is also very helpful in stressful situations.

Our first review of the Panasonic Lumix G9II

This year there's simply a reason for Panasonic fans to celebrate, as their system cameras have been around for 15 years and they're celebrating with a new Lumix G9II. This camera is a welcome successor to the G9 and you'll find out why in the article below. But in the end, we have a few more novelties and news.

The new G9 body and its form factor

The G9 Mark 1 enjoyed a great deal of popularity as an MFT camera. Its weight and size made it the perfect camera for travel bags and more for most photographers. Its successor, the Lumix G9II, is now in the body of the Lumix S5II, which of course means that the camera is larger, but it essentially has advantages that benefit the camera.

The components of the S5II in the G9II

So the G9 II has inherited the following components from the S5 II:

  • same viewfinder
  • same display
  • same connectors
  • same button layout

This has many advantages: Especially if you work with several cameras at the same time and have to switch between them quickly, then you can get to all the setting options without having to get used to them and you are also used to the same image quality of the viewfinder / display. A not to be neglected advantage is of course also given by the same connections, because you need the same cables and so you can either save cables or, albeit blindly, reach into your pocket and the cables are compatible with all cameras, which is also very helpful in stressful situations.
