Panasonic Lumix DC-G9

Dustproof/water resistant at depth equal to or greater than 1 meter.

For example

Panasonic Lumix DC-TS7

4. more viewfinder coverage

95%

100%

With 100% coverage you can compose the image correctly when you capture the photo. With less than full coverage you may have to crop your photos afterwards to get them looking perfect.

5.has an optical viewfinder
Canon EOS 77D + Canon EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM
Panasonic Lumix DC-G9

An optical viewfinder (or OVF) allows the photographer to compose a shot while seeing exactly what the lens sees. There is no time lag and they require no power - as opposed to electronic viewfinders which can drain battery life. They are also better in low light situations.

6.Has a built-in focus motor
Canon EOS 77D + Canon EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM
Panasonic Lumix DC-G9

The focus motor moves the lens in order to autofocus. For system cameras, having a focus motor in the camera's body allows you to use a wide range of lenses, including lenses which do not have their own focus motor. For compact cameras, a focus motor is usually built-in.

3.Is a telephoto lens
Canon EOS 77D + Canon EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM
Panasonic Lumix DC-G9

A telephoto lens allows you to zoom in on far away objects. This is particularly useful when you need to photograph a subject from a distance, such as wildlife photography, or even in some cases street photography where you can’t get near the subject.

4.Can focus to infinity
Canon EOS 77D + Canon EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM
Panasonic Lumix DC-G9

Many lenses allow you to focus to infinity. This is essential when you wish to take photos including far off objects, such as when shooting landscapes, in order to make sure everything is sharp and in focus.

5.Has full-time manual focus
