For your type of photography i recommend to go full frame. Whilst the E M1 is a very nice camera (assuming you get one without the shutter shock problem) the files tend to look grainy. With the full frame option the files look much more silky/velvety.

I have read that E-M5/E-M1 noise isn't actually so much in RGB channels but in luminance channel from where it is pretty easy to remove? But to me the grain isn't a problem, I am use to it and I actually prefer random grain look (I don't like noise, and from there I even like Olympus noise on max values as it is good looking one) as it brings life to picture. So I can't understand so much those who demand all the time smooth photo as possible..

I use the a micro 4/3 system for street and some creative photography styles and several full frame systems for urban, landscape and other " considered " photography styles.
The E M1 is an ideal camera for unobtrusive type of photography.
Instead of the Nikon d 600 i use the Nikon DF with some small primes. Whilst the Df is expensive the Nikon prime lenses are cheap. If you use zoom lenses for the Nikon D 600 then the package gets quite sizable.

Have you had problems with the EVF eye sensor when holding camera close your shirt?
