I upgraded from a GH1 to a G5, and am thrilled! I think your G1 has the same sensor as the GH1, so you would likely be pleased too. The IQ is better (esp. at ISO 1600 and up), the auto white balance is much improved, 6 frames/second burst rate (plus 20fps at lower mpx), has the ETC feature, much better GUI, I like the grip better.....

I think this cam is a great value - based on my (very amateur) needs, I can't see myself upgrading anytime soon - I love it!

Coming from a GH1, don't you miss the extra manual controls? I quite frequently use the lever to quickly change to manual focus, as well as the one for bracketing and burst mode. In that respect it feels a bit like downgrading.
