Panasonic Lumix G9

A consistently cool classic

The 20.3 megapixel Lumix G9 has a rugged splash and freezeproof magnesium alloy body. Photos can be stacked in-camera to produce 80-megapixel high-resolution JPEGs or RAW files. With class-leading image stabilization and 4K video, the Lumix is a micro four-thirds camera that's earned its excellent reputation.

Bottom line

Mirrorless cameras are the future, and each year they get more impressive. Our favorite camera is the Sony a7 III. This full-frame camera with IBIS works well for landscape, wedding, and event photographers. With all the contributions Sony has made to the mirrorless field in the last few years, we still think they're leaps and bounds ahead of the competition.

Fujifilm is another brand that's paving new paths in mirrorless, and the Fujifilm X-T3 is one of their best offerings in recent years. The colors Fujifilm outputs are so good that many photographers choose to shoot in JPEG instead of RAW! And the glass in Fujifilm's lineup is outstanding!
