EM1 or 6D? Suggestions?
Mar 27, 2014

Sold my GH3 with 12-35mm and 35-100mm lenses.  Thought I would stay with just my GX7with 14-140II and 20mm, but the GAS fever (and money received from the sale) is giving me all kind of ideas.  Mostly:

Should I get an EM1 with 12-40mm, and have some lens compatibility with my 100-300mm?

Or, should I get the Canon 6D with the 24-105mm lens, and use it as a walk around?

I do mostly travel photography, mostly for on line albums and photo books. I hardly ever print, and if then never big. And although I like my m43 output, I'm wondering if the FF format will give me some more "punch" and clarity?

There has been much discussion about m43 vs. FF, so I'm trying to wrap it all up for my decision.  Not pixel peeping, but if I took the same photos under the same conditions, would the EM1 pictures be any better or worse than the 6D?
