Worth Going Canon FF?

I currently use a Canon C100 and BMCC for video work so I have some EF Mount lenses. The FF lenses I have are:

Canon 24-105mm 
Zeiss 50mm f2.0 Makro
Samyang 35mm and 85mm 1.4

I am thinking of getting a DSLR purely for photography.

I was wondering if it's worth going for something like a Canon FF these days (and being able to use some of my lenses) when the D800e is the competition. If I am going to lug around a DSLR i'd want it to be heads and shoulders better than a mirrorless camera. I've played around with a 6D and it certainly has a much more soft look than the Leica and X100S i've played with. I'm assuming it's down to the AA filter which is why the D800E interests me.

So I'm not sure if I should get the 6D or if it's worth going for a D800E and a 50mm manual lens?

Any advice from Team Canon?
