Panasonic Lumix DC-G9 is a high-end mirrorless camera in the Micro Four Thirds-mount system. Introduced by Panasonic in 2017, it comes with a micro four thirds sensor with 20 MP (5184 x 3888) resolution and a 3.68 million-dot EVF.
The camera has a usable battery life, though a second battery may be a good thing to keep in your camera bag.
