Sorry to butt into this thread but have you seen the comparison on ephotozone between the GH3 and OM-D using the same lenses? I was quite shocked by the quality of GH3. Compare the watch face pictures at 100%. The GH3 doesn't even look like it's in focus. But all the pictures are like that.

The age old issue of comparing default JPEG settings against one another.

For JPEG shooters, this is not relevant because any competent shooter will be adjusting all the parameters to get what is desired. In this case, both contrast and sharpness settings would have been boosted for the GH3 and frankly sharpness and white balance would have been adjusted on the OM-D.

For RAW shooters, this test is a joke. Period.

So the test is relevant for whom?

As far as I can tell, fan boys and measurebators and probably no one else.

I've just downloaded ACR 7.3 with support for the GH3 and processed the raw version of the watch image. It is still not sharp.

Either, the camera was not focussed due to either the photographer or the AF system or the sensor in the camera is not capable of capturing the same detail as the OM-D.

Try it for yourself and then have another "sigh".
