There are 2 things about calling the G5 a G4.

a) was that Apple had G4 patented
b) in chinese I think G4 stands for "You die" or something, so that would leave out pretty much the asian market in buying the camera.

Correct me if I am wrong.. I'll have to look up the info again to make sure

the g5 is not worth the extra money, get a g3 instead. First, the only improvements is the resolution, and the g5 actually has more noise than the g3! It also has worse chromatic abberations! And if you have a g3, do not get a g5, 1mp difference is not worth an update...
