they're all good cameras!

get one with a viewfinder (so rule out any PENs) since that is what you're used to and you will most likely miss it (reflexes and muscle memory, etc.) even if you say you're open to trying to other viewing styles. in my opinion, a built-in viewfinder is much better structurally as well as financially.

GH2, as a very strong video camera, might be 'wasted' on you if you're primarily interested in stills. therefore, i would recommend either the G3 -- for all intents and purposes a cheaper, simpler GH2 without the video emphasis, which would 'save' you some cash for better lenses -- or the OM-D, which, while more expensive, does have very excellent image-stabilization and high ISO output, which could, perhaps, lessen the 'need' to buy faster glass.
