      I was considering the Sony for awhile, but I have owned many Panasonic's camera and non camera products over the years and have never failed me, unlike a few Sony non cameras products that have not survived the test of time. Right now I I own a Panasonic FZ80 great camera zoom on this camera, but it is a bit too plastic feeling for my taste especially since I did own a Canon 60 D for a while feels proper and manly. I may upgrade and keep my current FZ80 and look at the G9 or wait a while and go full on board with the Panasonic S1 full frame. The lens investment is what holds me back on these cameras, this is just my opinion I love Panasonic.

      Help! I absolutely can not decide between this two cameras. There is so much to like about the G9. It has almost every facility in perfection and i like what comes out of the camera, when using Leica-lenses. The a6500 has some drawbacks. A weak display, a noisy shutter, halfhearted touchfunction, a fiddly memory card slot, not the best colors in jpegs. But i like the small formfactor and the rangefinder-style. It is easy to transport und more discrete. The G9 is a little bit to big and heavy for a MFT-camera for my taste. I am very torn between this 2 cameras. At the moment i have the G9. But i just bought a used a6500 and when i got it i will see what my instincts says. ;-) Thanks for your great videos!

      I bought and HATED the Panasonic FZ2500 two years ago. I am very hesitant to go for the G9 even though on paper it seems to have almost everything I want. The image quality and autofocus speed of the Sony a6500 are just so appealing to me, especially as a father who will be primarily taking pictures of his young child who is into dance, gymnastics, and soccer. I want to be able to get good still images of my child as she dances indoors, for example. I'm less concerned about typical still photos outdoors, though fast autofocus performance during soccer will also be desired. Can you offer any input regarding the use of the G9 vs the a6500 for my particular situation?

      I am so torn about these two cameras. I can not decide wich to buy. Although i think i like Panasonic a little bit more and the G9 has some advantages over the a6500 in functions and ergonomics, but there is one important plus for the a6500: the size of the sensor.

      Marco Hoffmann for me the only advantage would be the variety of interesting micro 4/3 Mount lenses that are out there. Panasonic and Olympus. But I'm still waiting to see what Sony will release by next year.

      You can't really go wrong with either, as you can see in the video, the sensor size is doesn't make that much difference is this particular case.

      I think there is one small thing that should be covered, and that is the ability to use the Sa6500 with external power pack in real time, additionally the apps extend the function of the camera very nicely. Finally the compact size of the Sony is "un-attending" so it can appear to be an amateur camera and avoid public scrutiny. (to some extent) You're videos are very helpful. Thanks again.

      You can use most of the new camera either while using USB charging or dummy battery and external power, G9 does that as well, I am personally not a fan of apps, I would much prefer having those functions in the menu like with other cameras, Sony is not even putting apps in the newest cameras. If the appearance is an issue, I recommend getting SmallRig cage.

      Great video, you deserve more subs in your channel
      almost at the end, you said that in terms of image quality the a6500 is still a bit ahead, do you see it if you take identical pictures ? because i think that having an AA filter will make the a6500 lose at least 2 MP so they should be almost equal

      Thank you, the image quality is not only about the sharpness, there are more important attributes like dynamic range and ISO performance. Whether you see the difference depends on what are you shooting and how are you publishing it.

      Great video -  spot on -   sad how Panasonic Lumix remains a bastard child with so many consumers -   do not even give them a try - 
      So many that are buying a name -     
      I hear over and over with Panasonic Lumix G9 owners that they really enjoy using the G9  -  makes them want to shoot more - 
      to me that says a lot -  pixel peeping is not the most important thing - rather the important shoots -  of course the G9 produces super nice IQ 
      I bought the Sony NEX5n then the NEX7 and then the A6000 and then the A6500 -    still have them all -  and yes they have all had a nice sensor -  but I have never enjoyed using them -  yes finally the A6500 has more options  and a bit better menu / display layout -    but in last 4 years Sony has only introduced only one new lens -   amazing -    and still no 24-70 F2.8 or 70-200mm F2.8 or F1.2 for F1.4 native lenses -

      Thank you, Lumix cameras are generally joy to use, even lower range models like G85 or even LX10, Sony has made significant improvements on A9 and A7R III but the user experience is still far from Panasonic. Having said that I still appreciate how much technology is Sony able to pack into such small cameras.
