    Correct. I haven't. I didn't know it was an M43 camera. I do own a tiny Panasonic point and shoot with an even smaller sensor so I'm not unfamiliar with small cameras.

    As far as I know, the GH5 and the G85 have bottom mount battery packs available ("DMW-BGGH5" for the GH5). I expect that the G9 will too, and probably there was one for the GH4 and one for the G7. I do not know about those.

    I do not know if you can power their cameras through a USB port. I can do that with my Yi-M1, which is both good and bad. The other day I had my Yi-M1 plugged in to charge but I did not notice that the power was on, so I wasted some electricity before I turned it off. No harm done, but an annoying waste. But in theory, I can use the Yi-M1 indefinitely (until a card fills, and then change the card and keep going) off "mains". I do not know about Olympus either.

    The G9 will be able to be powered through the USB, so you can attach battery packs via a cord (and I assume directly to a wall plug??). Not sure about the GH5.

    I guess these small cameras have to grow, to put a larger capacity battery in them.
    Till then, have to buy and carry extra batteries.

    Having used the G9 for a couple of months now I can honestly say all the hype was justified is in an excellent camera.

    Agreed. Had mine about a month. Yes its a bigger camera, but still comfortable to hold. Thing is a beast. Burst mode is insantiy. And I was not expecting the dramatic noise improvement over my G6.
