I mentioned one of the things that I don’t like about the GX9 is the location of the tripod socket, I was concerned about how close it is to the front of the camera.
Putting a small arca swiss compatible plate on it demonstrates the issue I was concerned about, not Panasonics finest moment in my opinion not least because best part of half of the plate is in effect supporting nothing !
The clearance with the tiny 12-32 zoom lens is fine as you can see below.
With larger lenses the clearance is not so good, the worst example being with my PL 100-400 where it is quite tight, the actual gap is about 2mm, so not much but enough just. So on the face of it all is ok.
