Honestly I would buy a G3 kit, and use the savings to invest in a nice second lens. In my opinion the G3 is a banging deal right now and I seriously doubt you would notice a difference between the G5 other than grip. A great G3 kit on B&H goes for $349. Hard to beat.

The question pertained to the EPL5 versus the G5.

There are many small improvements in the G5 over the G3. I would rate the function lever, pinpoint autofocus, electronic (silent) shutter, better grip, and improved touch-controls on LCD to all be important improvements.
