Verdict

The Panasonic G85 / G80 was a camera we prized for its comprehensive feature set, excellent performance and sound output, and with only a handful of changes here the experience is just as positive. 

The Panasonic G95 /G90 feels very nicely put together and handles well, and it's pleasingly responsive throughout its operation. Image and video quality are generally sound too, and the fact that the camera has sensor-based stabilization arguably gives it an advantage over its rivals that rely on this in the lens only. On the other hand, the 20MP sensor, while a step up from the G85's, doesn't look particularly competitive when you consider the 24MP and 26MP APS-C types used in rivals. 

Cost is perhaps the main issue here: particularly with a lens, the G95 /G90 isn't a cheap camera, and it seems a little too highly priced when you consider the changes made. It's also being launched into a section of the market where strong competitors like the Fujifilm X-T30 and Sony A6400 make you question whether you're getting your money's worth. It's a very good camera in isolation, but those not tied to any system may well be swayed by what the competition offers.
