The Lumix G5 and G6 offer the touchscreen-focusing feature you're looking after, and it is quite excellent. Only downside is they're considerably larger than the V1 (right between a V1 and D3X00 in size, as a matter of fact), but you're getting *plenty* of features and controls that would make the upgrade more than worth it, even if it's not an ideal trade-off for you.

The good news is that nowadays both Panasonic and Olympus are making a new push for compactness. The 12-32mm pancake just released will be followed by a compact 32-100mm zoom, and Olympus will soon be releasing its own pancake zoom along with the OM-D EM-10, which may rival the V1 in size.

The rest of the features you're looking for are readily available in any modern M43 body... IQ (and much more) has come a long way since the days of the EP2 and is close to modern APS-C cameras.
