Where do I go from here?

I bought a Panny G3 when they first came out, and I would now like to upgrade the body (which really means - a newer/better sensor).  I am fairly invested in the lenses (20 / 14-45 / 35-100 / 100-300).  I didn't upgrade to the G6 due to it essentially having the same sensor as my present G3. I'm wondering what would be the best choice:  Panny GX7, GH3, or go Oly E-M1?

I really like the "mini DSLR" look & feel; an articulating screen, and having a built-in flash. I don't care about video.  All 3 choices seem to have pros & cons. Would I find the Oly menu structure frustrating?

As I will likely keep my old G3, one thing that might push me towards the GH3 or GX7 is if they use the same battery as my G3 (I have 3 of them!).

Care to help me get some clarity and direction?
