No, not without an adapter.

It should. I have the previous model, the G85, and it has different shutter options you can pick from including an electronic shutter.

Also just reviewed the G95 manual and it does have the electronic shutter as an option including a dedicated silent mode which toggles some other features such as the electronic shutter sound and button beeps as an example.

To answer your question "yes".

A bit of advice, hone your craft a little better with your cellphone or a point and shoot first. Once you know enough to answer your own question then you're ready to buy a $1000 tier camera. If not you may find that once you learn more about it you will have wished you had something different.

I would assume based on you saying you're a noob that you're not going to post video anywhere that will stream over Full HD (1080). Most phones or point shoot cameras can do that now. Learning a little production value, will make much more impact on professional(ish) quality than an extra $500 on a camera will. As I said, it will be two fold because once you get there you'll really know better how you want to spend your $500-$1000.
I own a videography business, started in weddings and local commercials and now focus on corporate such as media training. The G85 has been my and my employees primary tool for years. They're compact, reliable, and with a speedbooster and Canon glass they can achieve great picture quality with good low light capabilities (I speedboost a Sigma 18-35 f/1.8 to achieve f/1.1 for dark scenarios that I don't have control over and they turn out great). Plus if one breaks, which none have yet, I don't have to worry about expensive repairs; I just buy a new one for a few hundred. You won't be able to color grade very extensively and there is no HDR but if you focus on the basics then there really won't be anything holding you back from getting a great professional look out of these.
Adorama actually has the better deals in this case... They're currently temporarily backordered, but for the same price you can get a bunch of accessories including an LED light, microphone, decent SD card and case.

Example: https://www.adorama.com/ipcg95ke.html

I'd previously read about the G95... But this deal at Adorama pushed me over the top. Thanks OP for making me look!

It sure can. Any mu43 lens will work, plus the lens it comes with is very good. Certainly better than most kit lenses.

I am a bit of a camera noob but may want to make some short videos for a small business. Nothing too fancy, but, I also don't want the videos to look too cheap/amateurish. Is this camera something that can be learned to the point where it can produce professional(ish) video? Thanks in advance for any thoughts.

I don't know much about these kinds of camera's but this popup on my deal yesterday:

Panasonic - LUMIX G100 Mirrorless Camera for Photo, 4K Video and Vlogging, 12-32mm Lens - DC-G100KK

Is this a better camera?

Adorama has the DC G200 for $597

I have a GX85 and GH5, and am tempted to get this one. The GH5 is 200 grams heavier, which in this system is a lot. Although I do like the rangefinder ergonomics of the GX85, I would like to have this G95 as a middle ground. Hmm... and the 12-60 would be a nice addition to my kit. Must resist. I'm better served to just get another, different lens.

IMO, if you are looking to get into photography, this is a decent camera. I always feel the tug of better image quality from a full frame or even APS-C sensor camera. So my rational mind always has to reason with myself: I am not printing wall sized prints or even poster sized, so a smaller, lighter and cheaper camera is a better fit for me. The "two stops" of image quality compared to a full frame is real - when you zoom in on a computer screen. The lower weight and money in your pocket is more real. And to get that better image quality, you must choose lower depth of field, which you don't always want.

Video quality is still top notch. Continuous autofocus is not good on this camera. So not a great fit for sports. For some video with continuous autofocus it will not be as good as other cameras, but nothing is perfect. I'd consider this a grade C with continuous autofocus at video. Other cameras are maybe a B or B-. There are no As.
