Video gurus: Pentax glass with NEX-6, NEX-7 or... GH3?

I'm currently contemplating the idea of switching over from my Pentax K7 for making short mini documentaries to something that can record higher quality video (let's say, BBC HD minimum standards). I also have a handful of pentax lenses and I would be very sad if I had to get rid of them - but I read that there are adaptors for the NEX and GH.

If you were in my boat which camera would you choose if you could pick between the NEX-6, NEX-7, or GH3, and why?

From what I've read online it seems the NEX-7 suffers from lacking some of the features of the NEX-6 (in addition to overheating) and the NEX-6 lacks the big sensor and higher build quality - which seems a bit silly.  A few vimeo users also complained about moire and aliasing on the NEX. I also found a few videos on the GH3 which also has limitations,  but I'm still curious if someone would pick an NEX over the GH3 or vice versa.

Thanks in advance!
