All those things Steve listed really are improvements.

But are they enough of an improvement to justify spending $1400 to replace a camera you recently paid $1000 for?

It just depends on you and your circumstance. If you want to use 4/3 PDAF lenses then that could be the best possible reason to spend the money.

Since I have a half dozen HG and two SHG and the Panaleica 25/ 1.4, the better focusing with those and the better grip and less fiddly buttons would be enough to justify the purchase.  The VF, IBIS and other improvements make it even better.

Nevertheless, I will wait until Christmas in hope of some kit pricing on the new zoom and the grip.
