Before we continue, though, let me explain you how Manfrotto reached the final solution called Lens Filter Suite. Sometime ago Manfrotto acquired the Xume magnetic adapters, which are

Evolving from the GH5, the Panasonic G9 offers a 20.3 megapixel Digital Live MOS Sensor without a low-pass filter and is presented as the best mirrorless camera for capturing moving subjects in sharp focus.
