A lot of my usage is hand-held landscape photography whilst hiking, something the Olympus excels at. However, I keep reading statements along the lines of "to get the best from the R5 you need to use a tripod". How true is that ? I understand the benefits of using a tripod as a compositional aid etc but will you get sharper shots than hand-held ?

I am not sure in what context you have read this.

They will only be sharper on a tripod if the shutter speed is so slow that it is impossible to hold the camera still during the exposure. That said, the R5 performs more impressively at higher ISO settings than older cameras, and taking advantage of this avoids long exposures in poor light.
