Can get a look at tk foto. Handled g9 and gh5 before buying thr. But i never switched it on, just wanted to try the ergonomics.

Hi. Would like to ask members using the G9 here, how is the camera's performance for taking bird-in-flight shots, and its low light high ISO performance?

Thank you.

Depends on the type of birds you are shooting. For smaller birds such as common kingfisher, bee eaters, it is hard to acquire initial focus lock and by the time it does, you prolly have missed the action. For larger birds such as Grey Herons, WBSE I have no issues in acquiring focus. It could be error on my part as I haven't been practicing BIF shots. I also do not use a red dot sight for BIF.

Thank you for your response.

I have already taken the plunge and bought a G9 body last Friday and tested it on Saturday.

So far I think at least the high ISO performance is very much better the those from my older G85. Yet to have chance to test the AF performance on moving subject though....
