Having a hard time to pick.. M4/3, APS-C, etc..

Hi, im Pablo, i've always been around forums, but this is my first time ever making a post :D... sorry for the mistakes i might get..

I'm looking for a nice camera but i don't like IQ in P&S cameras. I want something to shoot mostly landscapes and daily photos( i.e. my dog playing, wife cooking xD, everyday stuff.).

Im a beginner with all this semi-dsrl kinda manual thing, i don't have much of an idea of how to setup my camera, but i don't want to use it in auto mode, something userfriendly and with onscreen help and stuff like that'd be good.. hehe =P..

I'm planing on getting maybe 1.. or 2 extra lens in the near future, but for now i'd be staying with the kit one, so IQ out of the box it's important, but not a deal breaker.

The thing is i got down to Oly e-pl3, Pana gf5, Pana gx1, Nex C3, and Nex F3.

I've reading and i know more or less the pros and cons of them, but i got some prices with some kits, i'd like to post them and maybe you guys could help me out making my mind.

Olympus E-PL3 + 14-42mm II R --------------------------------------380.€
Panasonic GF5 + 14-42mm ---------------------------------------------370.
Panasonic GF5 + 14-42mm + 14mm --------------------------------475.
Panasonic GX1 + 14-42mm --------------------------------------------450.
Sony NEX C3 + 18-55mm + 16mm ----------------------------------450.
Sony NEX C3 + 18-55mm -----------------------------------------------290.
Sony NEX F3 + 18-55mm + 16gb + nice leather bag ----------420.

I also have in mind, though it's not exactly what im looking for.

Nikon D3100 + 18-55mm ------------------------------------------------400.
Panasonic GF3 + 20mm f/1.7 -------------------------------------------450.

Thanks a lot guys, hope you can help me out.
