GH3 or OM-D, that is the question...

I am a GH1 owner and I have been waiting for GH3 to be announced. I was disappointed with the fact that GH3 is much larger than GH1. Now, I am not sure if I should get the OM-D or the GH3. Any advice?

I am an amateur photographer and a videographer. I own the following lenses

  1. Voigtlander 25mm
  2. Panasonic 20mm
  3. Oly 45mm
  4. Panasonic 7-14mm
  5. Panasonic 14-140mm
  6. Voigtlander 40mm
  • I mainly take photos of food, family and landscape. 
  • I love GH1's swivel screen. It is very useful. 
  • As I use manual lenses, OM-D's image stabilization sounds very attractive (I hear that the new firmware will add IS to legacy lenses). 
  • Compactness of camera is important.
  • I don't like the fact that OM-D does not have a built in flash. I sometimes use built in flash.
