The GH5 or G9 would be better for general use as they have IBIS the GH5S does not but has a bigger sensor with better low light. They are all dust and splash proof as are the latest lenses. I have the 12-60 and 14-140 which also have optical stabilization. G9 has a 30min record limit that the GH5 does not have and is limited to 4:2:2 8 bit on output where GH5 and GH5S have 10bit 4:2:2 for external recording. You can think of the range as follows: G9 stills focused that takes video with 30 min limit, GH5 full hybrid stills and video and the GH5S as focused on video for use on a tripod or other stabilized support with better low light and dual ISO range. If you do not need to shoot video in segments greater than 30 min the G9 is likely a better choice as it is very capable , especially with the latest firmware update and lower cost than the other two.

EDIT: The latest firmware update does give the G9 10bit output too as well as Vlog ( paid update like the GH5 ) So G9 is very attractive for general use.

One change in this firmware release I have found useful and its on all three GH5, GH5S and G9 is highlight metering mode has been added. I have found useful in not clipping highlights in the theatre which is often difficult to see.

Not sure what to send. The cameras now have 4 metering modes . Multi metering, Center weighted, spot and Highlight Weighted. The last was added with the latest firmware. My thoughts are it measures the highest readings in the scene and sets any auto exposure settings based on those reading and displays on the meters relative positioning. Normally I would have used multi setting for my shoots. My normal setup is shutter priority, auto gain ( with a low limit ) and set exposure compensation to taste ! I usually had to really watch zebras and waveform monitor to avoid clipping on actors faces but get good shadow detail. Using this new highlight exposure control has worked well for the last three shows. I had the GH5 set up this way and usually the GH5S full manual but with the same metering mode. I also tried the GH5S with auto gain like the GH5 and this also worked well. I really wish Panasonic would implement showing parameters all the time on the LCD like most camcorders indicating whether the parameter is in auto or manual. That way it would be easy to know if one of the auto parameters was getting close to the limit set. Gain for instance.

Highlight Weighted should definitely come in handy for dance concerts

Yes the three shows were two dance and one theatre play. Nothing was blown out and no noticeable pumping of exposure either. Great. Worked in Vlog too.

Like Anton said. I shoot UHD 60P on the GH5 and GH5S and HD60P on the AX100 edit in a HD 60P multicam project. After initial multicam edit I go back and fine tune by crop/pan and zoom the GH5's using layouter. Final edit looks like it has been done with a lot of cameras. Output HQX 60P file and encode for DVD mpeg2 with TMPGenc. Put the HQX file in an interlaced HD project and create a Bluray file. This is how I do almost all my projects. I am occasionally restricted to one camera archive and then shoot in UHD 60P as a final archive.
