I would say that his suggestion is typical sales talk.

You wanted to buy a system with a great body and the best glass currently available. The sales person advice boils down to you entering 2 very different systems, with great bodies BUT only so-so glass.

The kit lens for the OM-D is optically mediocre (while having several other advantages), while the Canon Full-Frame would be paired with a 'second class' lens.

While neither of the two packages are bad per-se, buying them together would be a dangerous split of resources.

I would also say that, at least for me, it would be very confusing to decide with what system to shoot one day, as both would have advantages and disadvantages.

In the end, the old advice of buying into a only one system and to grow with it, adding lenses and accesories as needed, still holds true.
