We have very minimal difference between the two camera related to sensor size or AF system since both have 16MP 4/3 format sensor and a contrast based AF system. But Panasonic have DFD: The Contrast based AF systems in Panasonic camera are bit different, they have dedicated pics of hardware to do AF and they are fast.  AF points will give you more screen coverage which is a nice thing. Built in 3-axis IS available inside the E-PL9 camera so you will get a 3.5Stops (CIPA) of help with the E-PL9.

For still shooting both are same but Panasonic G7 have DFD which is more promising and E-PL9 give more screen coverage For video I recommend Panasonic G7 due to availability of Ext Mic support and more usable display screen then of E-PL9. you can use tripod while creating self videos with Panasonic G7.

Panasonic G7 $497.99
