Why GH3? Should i get D600 instead?

GH3 is a 500g monster
Wouldn't it be better to get D600 instead, which is only 50% heavier?

I cannot understand the direction of m43
lenses are getting more and more expensive and body are becoming bigger
and the rangerfinder-sized bodies are inferior than NEX

The LCD resolution in EPL5 is still the same

The 42.5mm f/1.2 and 150mm f/2.8 are pretty amazing
but I bet it won't be available before 2014 and they will be VERY EXPENSIVE

On the other hand, Nikon has released some lighter weight DSLR and lenses

e.g. D600 + 85 f/1.8 is ~ 1kg, already lighter than before; but IQ / DoF Control will be much better than GH3 + 42.5
don't forget the 85 f/1.8 is quite cheap comparatively
