OM-D Olympus for image quality and comprehensive control.

GH3 Panasonic for best video.

I use my GH3 for stills only.....as do quite a large number of people who have the camera over at the M43 forum.   IQ between the two cameras is almost identical (apparently the same sensor...), and control/programmability of the GH3 is as comprehensive, if not more, than the OMD.

G-series (G5, etc) Panasonics for low cost, toughness and ease of use.

The G5 is a great little camera, but will not suffice for pro use in terms of IQ or build quality.  The GH3 is built for professional use; the OMD not explicitly so (Oly has said they are planning on releasing a pro model late this year), although a number of professional photographers do use it.
