I recently purchased the Panasonic G9 after much soul searching so to speak. I looked very closely at the Pentax KP with the 300/4 lens for birding. I looked at Nikon and finally settled on the Panasonic G9 for various reasons. First, like the Pentax, it is completely weather/dust resistant. While larger than most m4/3rd cameras it is not that large. Large enough to handle bigger birding/nature lens. Plus, it is just big enough for using with gloves. The G9 reminds me of my old Pentax PZ1P but with a fully articulating screen. The 2x crop factor is very good for shooting nature and wildlife subjects. It is not as good as Pentax for low light photography but works ok as long as you keep the ISO under 1600. Comparing prints made with the G9 to the Pentax I have a hard time telling which image came from which camera. The option of having more longer lens choices than Pentax was a deciding factor for my decision. I never warmed up to the KP and I did not trust the K70 since aperture block failure has been reported in them. I lost my K50 due to that problem so I am gun shy when it comes to that issue.
Anyway, for anyone considering the Panasonic G9 I have to say I am very pleased.
