Welcome to the club, you may find it a fun experience

Well, I really loved my GH2, so I am hoping this will be an improved, small, version of it.  (I was hoping they would have put the G5/GH2 sensor in the GF6, but they did not, so this seemed like the best option for the second body for me).

Best option if you disregard Olympus, that is. See, if you decide to stick with Panasonic and want the best m4/3 sensor you have to buy a huge Hulk's camera, which GH3 is, Panasonic won't give you any other option.

G5 may be a good enough camera but it's still DSLR-sized camera, Panasonic won't let you to have the same image quality in GF form factor. If you though about freedom of choice - forget about it, you chose your brand.

I am a happy owner of E-PL5 and I don't even know what to think about people seriously considering GF6 with image quality similar to GX1 but without hot shoe and for a price similar to E-PL5.

I'm looking forward to it!

I'm not:) But I'm sure you will enjoy it and you will be able to take great photos with it. Human's ability to adapt to various constraints can make wonders.

If you'd seen or held a G5 you would know that it is not a 'DSLR sized camera' and it certainly doesn't have DSLR sized lenses.

It's also far better ergonomically than the OMD, and Panasonic don't charge you an outrageous price for the grip!

The OMD is form over function IMHO and not a patch on the G5 to actually use.

Your assessment of the GH3 is also wide of the mark, and comes from a position of ignorance as well.
