First in Mirrorless innovation, LUMIX by Panasonic leads in Mirrorless ILC camera innovation with the sleek, compact LUMIX GX9. Its flat body style is favored by LUMIX G enthusiasts and noted for high image quality and the streetwise creative freedom it delivers. The LUMIX GX9 captures vibrant, true-to-life, high-quality images with excellent resolution, high contrast and impressive color reproduction. The 20.3-megapixel Digital Live MOS Sensor (without low-pass filter) ensures maximum performance across a full range of LUMIX G and LEICA DG Micro Four Thirds lenses.
The LUMIX GX9 incorporates 5-axis Dual I.S. (Image Stabilizer) to more effectively suppress blur. Combining an O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilizer, 2-axis) and a B.I.S. (Body Image Stabilizer, 5-axis), the 5-axis Dual I.S. compensates for a wider-than-ever range of movement. Users can enjoy blur-free photo/video shooting from wide to tele, even in low-light situations. The LUMIX GX9 integrates an electromagnetic drive in the shutter unit to reduce the shock created by the movement of shutter diaphragm by approx. 90% compared with its predecessor, while also minimizing shutter sound.

Has a more boxy shape then the similar GX85 and offers (very slightly) better color rendering and IQ, tho you will have to pixel peep to see it.
Consider it more of a baby step advance vs a full step, with regards to the GX85.
The GX85, in my opinion, is one of those rare 4/3rds cameras that gets all the important stuff exactly right, and the GX9 sort of adds a tiny bit of techno sweetening to that firmly established excellent pie.
The GX9's Screen is excellent, user friendliness is very good, and indoor photos in low light are in general above average and pleasing.
Quick AF, and menus are fairly easy to navigate.
The look of the photos, to my eye, are more similar to the more recent Sony's then the more recent Canon's.
Im running mine with some Prime Olympus & Pany glass, and actually have only used the supplied tele lens for a few mins and its surprisingly above average, and its quite light.
I posted 2 photos for you, taken with my GX9's picture setting set to "Standard", the contrast is +1, Saturation is +1, and the Sharpness is 5/7.
The IQ is quite sharp at this setting..... take a good look at the 2 photos, and know these are straight Jpegs out of the camera.
The first is a grey sandstone angel that is about 20" high, and the second photo is a miniature blown glass Ram, that is about 2.5 inches high.
Look at the detail of the glass Ram, = fluorescent kitchen lighting, "P", everything on "auto".
This camera is pretty much "set it and forget it", indoors or out.
Is there a downside?......I'd give the camera' grip a C, & the battery door is fiddly vs smart..
I think that if you like the Pany products, like the LX100, or any of their more recent camera, then this one is going to continue your good feelings.
It is a $1000 camera, so they are not exactly giving it away, but you do get a pretty darn good glass as well as a nice instrument for taking quick, easy, good looking pics.
One last thing.
This camera is not designed for selfies.
Its designed for photography, so, keep that in mind.
Get a nice phone for your selfies, and a real camera for your Photography.
Like this one.
I am not a professional photographer and do not have experience with wide variety of gear. Photography is my hobby and 90 percent of it is landscape. To give you an idea check my instagram: place_of_adventures. Until recently I owned Nikon D5500 and Sigma 18-35mm. It was a nice combo, IQ is great for my needs. But the weight and size... I hike and travel a lot so decided to get something smaller and got Lumix LX100. Awesome little camera. Loved the manual dials and it was tiny. Could not tell difference in IQ between that and Nikon as long as you don't zoom/crop and don't go above ISO 1600.
After a short while with LX100 I realized I want longer zoom and started looking into ILC again. Was thinking to get GX85 with 12-35mm and 45-150mm or PEN-F with 12-40mm and 45-150mm. PEN-F is beautiful but I use tripod a lot and their screw mount is positioned oddly. Besides that meant getting bigger lens (12-40 vs 12-35) and additional hand grip possibly.
GX9 is a bit better and newer than GX85 and price difference is not that big considering you get 12-60 (~$300 value).
So I went for GX9 and finally arrived (12-60mm kit lens for sale). Got 12-35mm already. I really like the way it feels in my hand, very solid and good grip. I liked EVF in LX100 and GX9 has the same which is fine with me. I know most of you think it's horrible compared to others but I have nothing to compare it to, thus I like it. Focus is fast but that doesn't matter to me much. IBIS is awesome which comes in handy when using long zoom. I think it performs very well at ISO 3200, I was surprised. The tilt screen is nice, don't care much for tilt EVF but it is handy sometimes. Enough custom buttons for my needs and manual dials are handy.
Not much else to say. It is a camera and it can take gorgeous photos if you know what you doing, as well, it's easy to use. I like it a lot :)
Here are some samples. All of them shot RAW and lightly processed in LR. The clock shot is at ISO3200 hanheld.
The kits lens is actually pretty good. The camera isn’t so small that buttons are in the way. I love that I can set up a personal custom menu page and map the function buttons where I want. I also like having Bluetooth and a touchscreen. You can completely control the camera using your phone and syncing pictures is a snap.
The only negatives I can think (they don’t affect me personally, though) of are that the supplemental grip might be important if you shoot with a long lens. The built in flash has a slow sync speed and will cast a shadow or the bottom left with the kit lens when it’s on a wide angle setting. A can’t recall the focal length where you zoom past that shadow. If you need to use flash with the kit lens, be sure to keep that in mind. I don’t think it’ll be an issue with physically shorter lenses.
Overall, I’m extremely happy with this camera. It’s a keeper!
