The G5 is likely to be faster.

With that said, absolute focusing speed doesn't matter as much as people make it out to be because it only makes for a small portion of the whole picture taking process.

Remember that before an image is fully read by the sensor, the following happens:

1. You wake up or turn on the camera (optional)

2. You hold the camera to your face/eye.

3. You compose the shot.

4. You press the shutter button.

5. The camera auto-focuses.

6. The shutter screens move.

The steps from 1, 2, 3, 4 and 6 will take the most of the time needed for a shot. A focusing speed that's twice as fast doesn't mean you will get a shot twice as fast (from the moment you see something you want to photograph).
