6D w/ Canon system vs EM1 w/ m43

Hi all,

I'm looking to get into a new system. Right now I'm looking at two vastly different setups, with a budget of ~$2500 right now. Will probably buy more over time.

1) Canon 6D (used ~$1400), with Sigma 24-70 f2.8 (~$500), Bower 14mm f2.8 ($300)

2) Olympus EM1 ($1400), 12-40mm f2.8 ($800 with rebate)

I'm willing to trade off the size of the m43 system for the quality of the Canon, full frame and low-light shooting. My shooting will mostly be general, travel, landscape and astro. I'm assuming the IQ of 6D would be better even with a lower-end lens?

Seems like the 6D would allow more room for me to grow into. Just wondering if there is anything I should take note of, seems kind of a no-brainer if I can accept using used gear.

Thanks for looking!
