That is correct

Are you referring to Qt5 in general or would it need QML support?
Anyway, I'll be very happy to hear what you find out.

I don't expect anybody has made one. You will most likely also need to
compile other dependencies for windows in order to make it work (qwt,
qwtpolar, pyqt maybe others?) because the versions in osgeo4w are all
compiled against qt4.

I hope you have some success, I am sure you are not the only one.
