Depends what you want, low weight take m43, take the Canon for:

Better low light performance (10 stops DR to ISO 3200, vs ISO 1000 for E-M5, etc.)

Big optical viewfinder (no lag and same DR as your Eye, less on-screen graphics) - I do get a bit fed up of going to major events and watching them on a circa NTSC res TV - 436K RGB pixels)

Better tracking AF

Much wider range of lenses

If you're a Pro much better support

Much easier to get accessories (very wide range)

Much easier to rent extra bits

Manufacturer flash with radio not optical communication built-in

Wider range of non-diffraction-limited apertures (but let's avoid the 20K word discussion of the fine detail)

I'm not saying how you rate the above. That's up to you and will vary wildly. Just a bunch of people do... (I have a GH3, if someone said I could only have one camera and it had to be that or the 6D I'd have the 6D, luckily the World doesn't work that way )
