F/4 for both lenses. Distanse of the shooting for Olympus was longer (85mm eq. vs 50mm), so DOF is more.

I was looking at the rear and top views of the GX9 and comparing it to my GX8 and noted several exterior physical changes.
1) +/- exposure wheel and mode dial to far right edge and overhanging slightly (easier to operate with camera at eye-level)(visible in image above);
2) on/off switch on back for right thumb operation with red button at its center (visible in image above);
3) across the top right rear: AF switch as on GX8, then a button marked with flash control, then the AE/AF lock moved inward, then in the spot where that lock is on a GX8 the GX9 has a new wheel directly above the rear thumb rest, and the thumb rest is moved downward slightly;
4) the four buttons around the four-way switch, and four way itself appear to be unchanged;
5) just noticed so I'm adding: the GX9 now has a little pop-up flash, although it's pretty feeble (GN 13 [ft] @ ISO 100); maybe useful for fill and some macro.

Those seem to be sensible, practical ergonomic changes. I imagine the new wheel at the position of the present AE/AF lock will have extensive customization options.

6) More notes on the GX9; Screen does not tilt/swivel, only fold up or down.
7) not weather/moisture sealed (= lowers price, GX9 + 12~60mm about the same price as GX8 body)
