Interesting. I can read the fine print on the blue sign from the EX1......but he same text falls apart on the 6D. I didn't expect that. Previous samples I've worked with showed the resolution to be about the same. That said, based upon this sample, I don't see the 6D blowing away the Fuji....if anything, with a bit of post, both would be just the same on a large print....with the rez advantage going to the Fuji.

I always liked your sense of humor.

First, the Fuji shot is terribly over-sharpened. You see awful artifacts, and the sensor has a lot to do with that.

If you want a well done comparison, you do not need to look further than this site. They tested in the most favorable conditions for the smaller formats - at the sharpest apertures. Still, the difference is clear.

Here, here and here, there is no need to guess. Here you may say - the Fuji resolves diagonal lines that the 5D3 cannot. But then you look at the D800 or the PhaseOne - oops, there are diagonal lines, but they have a different direction! What Fuji "resolves" is false detail, thanks to its voodoo sensor. Speaking about text, here it is.

Speaking of artifacts, you seem to not like slight sharpening halos, yet you seem ok with the horrible rainbow colors from the text of the Canon Raw.  In real world output, there is little difference between the cameras.
