Default Best gaming mouse: MX Revolution vs. G5

I'm thinking about buying a new gaming mouse soon for my icemat. I've basically come down to either of these two mouse. I left out the MX1000 because my impression is that revolution is newer and thereby better.

So what'll it be, Revolution or G5, corded or cordless? Or something completely different?

BTW I'm not interested in MX518 thogh I know this mouse have a fangroup - I'd rather have a the newer G5 in that case

I have a G5 here, used MX500, MX510, MX518 and IE3.0. Of all the mice the G5 and MX510 are my favs. You can't go wrong with any of the top mice these days accuracy wise, in my opinion it is down to which you like holding the most and has the buttons you want.

Good luck with whichever mouse you choose.

Edit: I just had a look at the Revolution and it doesn't appear to be a gaming oriented mouse, however I am sure it would perform fine as long as there is no wireless lag.

My vote goes to the G5

I keep looking for the G7, and it seems like it's been discontinued. If someone knows of a place that still sells them, could you post a link? My MX1000 is dying, and I need a good replacement.
