I have a G10, the slightly defeatured  cousin of the G2.  I decided to spend my discretionary photo budget this year on a 25mm f/1.4 lens, not on a G5.

That lens gives me 3 stops (at 25mm) over the kit lens.  (1.4 --> 2 --> 2.8 --> 4).   It will let me shoot indoors at 1/60 second in light for which the kit lens would need 1/8 second (at the same ISO).

Buying a G5 would have cost more, and would not have given me that much gain.
