On a technical level, medium format is superior to both

I've done a lot of research concerning Micro 4/3.  I thought of getting the Panasonic GH3, but am not satisfied with the quality of photo against say the new Nikon d7100.  So does a DSLR produce better quality photo's, or have I not seen good photo's from a Micro 4/3?  I really like the Micro 4/3, but my main interest is in the quality of the photo.  Thanks for your help!

If your main interest is in the technical capabilities of the camera, what you should really be looking at is a Hasselblad, Phase One, or other medium format system. I suspect, however, that your "main interest" is actually substantially more nuanced than "quality".

As David says, good photographers create good photos. Buying a hammer based on it's "quality" doesn't make a better carpenter.
