I just read this very interesting thread and I have zero input on the charateristics of any of the alternatives.

I will, from the advantage of reading it all in one go, offer an observation.

It's very clear you want to try FF.  Therefore, do it.  This is a hobby for you and you do it for fun.  Other points of view, or the detailed merits of the alternatives, really don't matter.  Do it.  You are thinking too much when your heart has already made a decision.

I came to mft from the other direction so FF has no alure for me.  But I kept my Nikon glass until I was sure mft was really for me.  When I decided I wasn't a two system guy I sold everything.

I agree with the suggestion that you try used equipment where you can investigate and go back at very little cost.  I did that when I first tried mft.

I don't know your €€€  situation but I'd sell just the mft body and keep the glass.  That will help pay for the FF, and protect your path back to mft or a two system kit.  (buying a used EM5 when the new version comes out will be cheap.)
