Re: Canon 6D with 24-105 or Nikon D610 with 24-85?

Both cameras are quite capable and deliver similar IQ.  D610 is better in DR at base ISO but 6D is cleaner in high ISO but difference is pretty small in real world photos.

Now comes to the respective kit lens.  24-105L/4.0 IS is much better than 24-85G/3.5-5.6 VR, constant f/4, longer at tele side, weather sealed and better build quality, also optically perform better.  24-105L counterpart is 24-120G/4.0 VR that is not part of any Nikon combo and costs lots more but optically performs about the same as 24-105L that is sharper lens than both Nikon copies as shown in DXO test below (such as at 24mm wide open).

DXO 24-105L on 6D vs 24-85G on D610 vs 24-120G on D610
