leaving olympus as main brand

Hi, as topic i'm thinking of leaving olympus as main brand since i'm thinking of buyng new lens. The problem is this i have a E-420, with oly 14-42mm kit lens, oly 50mm manual lens and lensbaby composer, this last one i can change the mouting without using an adapter.

My reasons are:

- new oly lens price are not the cheapest,

- used oly lens in ebay are in reduced number and also not very cheap compared to other brands.

- oly apeares to be uninterested in continuing 4/3 system, and is inclined in going micro 4/3.

- no video in oly 4/3 system (correct this one if wrong).

Because of this i'm looking for other brand,

the 3 cameras i'm looking at the moment are:

-Nikon D3200 and D5200

- Canon 650D

At the moment i'm more inclined for the 650D, because:

-canon support (Nikon suport appears to be not that good)

-used lens quantity

-touch screen.

-price it's more expensive that the D3200 but cheaper that the D5200.

-lens price Nikon / Canon are similar, and they both have tamron and Sigma.

I want to know your opinions.

P.S: i'll be keeping my E-420 since at the moment i'm only geting offers of 100€+- which i think is not good enough.

Canon EOS Rebel T4i (EOS 650D / EOS Kiss X6i) Nikon D3200 Nikon D5200 Olympus E-420 (EVOLT E-420)
