A new lens, especially if is a focal length that you don't have will always be better than a new camera. Unless you definitively need a new camera, because the one you currently have has been damaged or lacks features that you definitively need. A new lens will widen your options (pun intended).

Another option is to save the money and get a G9 in the future, or a Leica 8-18mm which is a more modern design than the 7-14mm.

The reasons the G85 looks so attractive are

1.  Newer shutter (I do see shutter shock on my 100-300II)\

2.  IBIS and Dual IS would get me better stailization with the lenses I currently use

3.  Weatherproofing A kit 12-60 and the 100-300 I already have would give me a solid MM coverage range that can stand up to the weather well

4.  Better E-shutter than my G7 and the option of EFC shutter

After some research the Lowa 7.5mm F2 is looking pretty attractive as well.
