    Our top pick

    The Lumix G9ii brings Panasonic's phase-detect autofocus system to Micro Four Thirds and the results are truly excellent. In addition, it vastly improves the burst shooting capabilities and refines the image stabilisation further. All this while keeping the high-end video features of the GH6, it's an exceptional camera.

    • Phase detect autofocus
    • Better image stabilisation
    • Much faster burst shooting
    • Expensive for an MFT body
  • Panasonic Lumix GH6 square-2

    Panasonic Lumix GH6
    Still great

    The Lumix GH6 is Panasonic's flagship Micro Four Thirds body for video shooters. However, it uses an older contrast-based autofocus system that's nowhere near as reliable. If you prefer manual lenses, or you find a great deal, it's still an excellent option but the newer G9ii offers almost all of the same features and more.

    • Onboard cooling fan
    • Hybrid tilting flip-out screen
    • CFexpress recording
    • Less reliable autofocus
