Panasonic G9 High Resolution Mode, Low Light AF, Video Quality, and Reviews

Many of the mirrorless cameras being produced today are coming out with similar features, which is probably partially because of Sony producing so much of the technology inside. We will have to wait and see if the Panasonic G9 is a serious Sony a9 competitor, but the high frame rate, pixel shift, and video performance inside many of these mirrorless cameras is becoming homogenous, while the prices continue to rise because Sony handling everything could be limiting the pinnacle of m43 performance.
