My guess, only an hypothesis, is that the G5 suffers from a bit of camera snobism. Enthusiast photographers tend to go for the high end 43rds cameras when considering their bigger, non-pocketable cameras (another hypothesis); the Oly fans go for the EM5, and the Panny folk for the GH series and some have both. The G5, relatively speaking, may tend to get left out in spite of its virtues.

That's always been the case with the G series.  They're not tiny like the GF or E-PM, they're not compact and retro like the GX, E-PL, or E-P, and they're not high spec'ed like the GH or E-M. It's a solid camera that provides a good value for the money--nothing really sexy about it.
