If you don't mind the Canon 60D weight, then keep it and sell the OMD. The reason is: the capability to install magic lantern firmware to 60D which has the focus peaking feature. Focus peaking will be very convenient for manual focus lenses (eg Rokinon).

Another positive side: if you decide to buy Canon lenses, you can share it with your wife Sony NEX (although she has to use manual focus - but NEX has also the focus peaking).

M43 lenses on the other hand cannot be used for APS-C sensor (NEX,60D) - well you can if you don't mind a BIG vignetting.
