If you take a look to the rumored specifications of the camera then we can see clearly that Panasonic G9 will have different video capabilities compared to Video Monster Panasonic GH5, but its photo capabilities will be much identical to GH5. You should know that GH5 has been in the stock for almost ten months since it was announced back in January of 2017 with the Price tag of $1,997.99. But the upcoming Panasonic G9 is rumored to have the suggested price of around ($2,300) for body only, whereas ($3,000) with the 12-60mm lens.
