Let’s take a look at the major differences between these two camera Sensor size of both the camera exactly same as well as a resolution,  so we are expecting same image quality from Olympus E-PL9 and Panasonic G85 camera. Panasonic G85 DFD AF speed is blazing fast, I have seen in the test its the fastest Panasonic camera I have ever seen. The Panasonic G85 gives you 4.5 Stops of IS and the Olympus E-PL gives you 3.5 Stops if IS. Continuous shooting speed of both the camera is same. Panasonic G85 is also dust and splash proof.

Video of Panasonic G85 is better, you can create profession quality due videos with the help of external mic jack and faster DFD AF system and better IS system.

Panasonic G85 $897.99
