GH1 vs G5

I'm considering an upgrade from the GH1 to the G5.  Usually I try to avoid the "new toy" syndrome and try to upgrade only where I feel there might be a tangible improvement in image quality and/or ergonomics.  On this basis, I upgraded from a Canon P&S to an FZ50 and thence to a GH1.  I do not do movies.  Otherwise I do like to try my hand at a variety of other subjects -- such as street casuals, landscapes, travel, macros, BIF and, most importantly, grandchildren.  (I suppose at some stage I will tend to concentrate on some kind of specialty, but am not ready to do so yet).  I would greatly appreciate a discussion of the relative merits of the two cameras to guide me towards a decision as to whether to act now of wait for a later upgrade to the G5.  I note that DXOMark rates the GH1 sensor very slightly ahead of the G5 (as one might expect from the former's lower pixel density), but the G5 image processor may more than compensate.  While DPReview has not yet rated the G5, other reviewers give it fairly high marks -- but I have not yet found any specific comparisons with the GH1. Would appreciate your views.
