The E-M5ii is an awesome camera which I’ve come close to buying myself but, as I take far more candid portraits than landscapes, star-scapes, or high-res product-scapes, I can’t now live without both the tilt EVF+screen. The rest of the GX9's body is generally the same rangefinder style, and the control layout is the same, except the AF switch vs AEL switch, and rear dial positioning. Since it is a studio comparison of cameras then the same lens should be used when possible and since they both have the same mount then it would be no problem and should be used to maintain integrity of the comparison.

As others have pointed out, the Pen-F at its price tag should have had weather sealing, do you think that at $1000 it's only a cost issue? Thank you for the comment and I apologize for the oversight.
