Shall we start a new topic ? GX85/80 is dead now. Long live to GX90/91/95/99 or whatever the stupid Panasonic naming convention is calling the new camera. 

This new Lumix can be a good companion to CL, they share the same batteries as a start. 

I don't think there is any sensor difference between the 8 series and the 9 series, so the relevant remarks will still be valid.

Oups sorry I was confused with Panasonic naming. I was thinking about the newly announced G90/91/95/99

They still have the same 20.3 MP sensor and Venus engine, so they are completely comparable to the GX 8 and 85 in image rendering.

The GX80/85 has a 16mp four thirds sensor. The current GX9 has a 20mp four thirds sensor. Do they really share the same battery with the CL? I'm always attracted to the idea of having cameras that share batteries. The Leica Q has the same battery as the Panasonic FZ2500 superzoom, from what I understand. The same battery has been used across the 2006 Fuji F30 pocket camera, the Fuji X100/S/T, and the Ricoh GXR. Panasonic uses the same battery in the LX10 pocket camera and the GM1/5 m43 cameras.

My mistake in that case. I thought the GX85 had the same 20.3 MP sensor as the GX8. I use the batteries I have (6 of them of three different brands) indiscriminately between my GX8 and CL.

And don’t heckle. 

I'd like to know what you mean by this before I even respond. It sounds a lot like a request to censor myself and NOT respond. Or I have been "heckling" in the sense like an audience member heckles a comedian or performer.

Still no response? 

It leaves my argument intact. Unless you want to talk about linguistics and culture. From Wiki in regard to your supposition that some cultures can't differentiate between blue and green :

Quote

Many languages do not distinguish between what in English are described as "blue" and "green" and instead use a cover term spanning both. To describe this English lexical gap, linguists use the portmanteau word grue, from green and blue, which the philosopher Nelson Goodman coined in his 1955 Fact, Fiction, and Forecast to illustrate the "new riddle of induction".

The exact definition of "blue" and "green" may be complicated by the speakers not primarily distinguishing the hue, but using terms that describe other color components such as saturation and luminosity, or other properties of the object being described. For example, "blue" and "green" might be distinguished, but a single term might be used for both if the color is dark.

Interestingly, a google translation in Japanese shows two distinct words for "blue" and "green." What does that make of your argument? And don't heckle.

Yes, at present. Originally the word for Blue-Green was Ao, but nowadays, as Japanese culture opened up to the western world, the word Midori was added to differentiate.

And where is the authority for your assertions? Please quote your sources more specifically.
