Pricewise there is little difference between the GH3's lead in price and the OMD with grip (nor much size difference for that matter). And if the sensor is the same I think the choice really comes down to brand allegiance and/or feature set, even ignoring video capabilities.
Agreed, without the half grip I find the EM-5 to just a touch on the small side, mind you still pretty useful if you want to go minimal and very light.

Looks like the GH3 is a real tangible step up in build quality to the previous Lumix bodies. Much in the vein of the E-1, 3 and 5 by the looks of things.
