D7000 or 4/3rds

Help I'm so confused!

I currently have a D200 and I am looking to upgrade. I see the D7000 has recently come down to sub $1K so I'm thinking this might be a good time. I also do a lot of traveling and would like to lighten my load from my D200 typically w/ AF-S 18-200 3.5-5.6 attached.

So I'm thinking that the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 might be the alternative of the moment. This I can get for $699 with a 14-42 and 42-170 lens kit. This would certainly lighten my load with little loss in sensor performance and let me upgrade in the future to a D7000 or whatever the "best deal" at the time is.

So at the risk of starting a fire storm I would appreciate some thoughts from current D7000 users and others.

Thanks for any comments and input.
