Since you are into macro then the OM-D and the Zuiko 60mm macro lens is exceptional. Even the 12-50 kit lens has a macro setting and can take very nice shots. Look at sample images. If you are into video mostly then go the GH3. I think the OM-D is still the best for stills but from what I've seen the GH3 is pretty close. The OM-D is small and takes getting use to.

Um, there are a lot of GH3 users out here who do not use the camera for any video whatsoever.  It is an exceptional stills camera (with the added bonus of being an exceptional video camera).  It also is ergonomically better laid out than the OMD......The OP really needs to get his hands on both to see which one is the best choice for his purposes; IQ for stills is probably not going to be the deciding factor here as they are both so close in overall sensor performance.,,,
