The scroll wheel is harder to middle click on the G5 becuase it wants to "slip" to the side thanks to the side scroll. It takes a few days to get used to it unfortunately.

So beings that the middle mouse/scroll click was your biggest pet peve, stay away from teh G5.

Unfortuantely, the mouse you describe, i think its made of unobtanium.

And, off the top of my head, i cant think of any gaming mice that are worth beans that come close to teh features you want/need as a gamer. But ill be thinking.
I decided to pick up the G5 anyway since the lack of weight to the Copperhead was really beginning to frustrate me. With a mouse that light and sensitive, the 'mouse cord drag' becomes quite noticable, as well as the tiny amout of directional force applied by clicking buttons. A maxed out G5 does not suffer from these problems.

I have to say, it is superior to the Copperhead in every way I care about. While the middle button is still a bit inaccurate, the fact that the scroll tilt effectively adds 2 very good buttons more than makes up for it. (After one day of use, I seem to left scroll + middle click about 15-20% of the time when trying to middle click under no pressure, and much more often when mousing frantically.)

I will post my full thoughts on these two mice in a day or two. But my initital take is similar to yours: The G5 is a nice step forward from the 510, and is undeniably superior to the Copperhead. While Logitech did make some mistakes, they are definatley moving in the right direction and I have a lot of hope for their next gaming mouse.
