Which Mirco 4/3 camera should I buy?

I just started looking for a new digital camera. I currently have a Nikon S9100, I've had it for a couple years and its a nice camera but I am looking for something that will give me better image quality and and a more control without having a huge/expensive DSLR. I'd also like to be able start experimenting with manual settings but still have auto modes available. The "Micro 4/3" cameras sound perfect. Now, which one do it get?

Here is a list of some features I am looking for:

  • Wifi to connect to smartphone
  • Viewfinder
  • Tilt/Swing screen
  • NOT a touchscreen
  • Interchangeable lens
  • Built in flash
  • Panorama mode (is this pretty standard for most cameras?)
  • Good video quality
  • Focus/Zoom control on the lens

As far as price goes, I am looking for something around $700 or less. I could definitely consider more expensive cameras though.

Some cameras I have been considering are:

  • Olympus OM-D E-M10
  • Sony RX100 II
  • Nikon P7800
  • Canon PowerShot G16
  • Olympus Stylus 1

Some of these might not be Micro 4/3 but still looked decent.

Any recommendations and what things should I be looking for in a good camera?
