Best Lumix body for HD video only?

Hi guys,

I'm looking for a Lumix body with microphone input, to be used to shoot some good quality HD videos at work, in an industrial environment. 4K not needed.

I have a budget of $600, but I'd prefer to spend less if possible.

B&H has the GH3 for $548, which seems to be a good price considering the build quality. The G7 and GX7 cost roughly the same. Is there a difference in video quality between the GH3 and G7? I'd consider the GX7 only if it has a hidden advantage over the other two.

I shoot mostly stills with three Oly bodies, which I like very much, but even the E-M5Mkii is "not quite there" in terms of video quality. I need something better, and I think a Lumix body could be the answer.

BTW, I have a bunch of m43 lenses... more than what I need.

Your comments and recommendations?

Thanks in advance!
