I am looking to upgrade from an EPL-1 to either a G5 or the OM-D (or EPL-5). What do you think about the differences between the two camera for IQ and ergonomics. I have limited use of my right hand and the EPL-1 is hard for me to use comfortably. Please no "only you can decide" comments, I am just looking for ideas.

Thank, Dave

On the ergonomics side the G5 is better, if the OMD has no grip attached.

IQ is better on the OMD but it is not the same price of a G5 as you know.

This does not mean the G5 is bad on IQ, the difference is not much in EV terms on DR and noise.

I think you have to think if you really need the top IQ, and pay more for it, also and about talking of IQ, you may consider the Pansonic Lumix GH3 that together with the OMD have high IQ, and the ergonomics on the GH3 are great. I have tried both and that is my opinion.
