     Smaller might be beautiful, but bigger is often better and that is certainly the case when it comes to imaging.

    Quick VerdictThere are many fine cameras available, all with their individual characteristics and feature sets, so something for everyone. The Lumix S9 deconstructs the S5 II range in some respects, particularly removing the viewfinder and hoping to reduce weight and bulk as a result. The weight and bulk of the S9 body may well be reduced, but the lenses are not, so we still need a bag to carry the camera in. Thus, we are left with a full frame camera that c
