Upgrading my E-M1 to ???

Hello,

I need some help with selecting a camera. I have been using E-M1 for a few years, but I will be gifting it to my brother, so consider that it would not be an upgrade but a new purchase. I am not a professional, but a hobbyist. So I am not going to shoot weddings or print pictures. But I like to take nice pictures of landscapes, family pictures in and out house, and sometimes night photography too. Bokeh effect was one thing which used to pull me a lot towards FF. Some home shoot videos of children, friends, and small functions. Years back when I bought my E-M1, I was leaning towards FF, but due to big and heavy bodies and lenses, I stepped back and picked M43. That was a happy decision. Now I want to upgrade E-M1 to ?? and due to the mirrorless format in FF also, there are many options. Money is a secondary factor but first is the weight. To balance that weight factor I picked the best lenses which I used on Olympus and good lenses of FF :

===Standard zoom===
Oly E-M1 iii (580g) + 12-40mm f/2.8 (382g) = 962g
vs
Nikon Z6 (675g) + 24-70mm f/4 (500g) = 1175g
vs
Sony a7iii (650g) + 24-70mm f/4 (426g) = 1076g
===Standard zoom===
Oly E-M1 iii (580g) + 25mm f/1.2 (410g) = 990g
vs
Nikon Z6 (675g) + 50mm f/1.8 S (415g) = 1090g
vs
Sony a7iii (650g) + 55mm f/1.8 (281g) = 931g
===Standard tele-zoom===
Oly E-M1 iii (580g) + 50-150mm f/2.8 (760g) = 1340g
vs
Nikon Z6 (675g) + 24-200mm f/4-6.3 VR (570g) = 1245g
vs
Sony a7iii (650g) + 70-200mm f/4 (840g) = 1490g

Will I be disappointed when I will compare my present best lenses of Oly with 'good' lenses on Nikon and Sony A7iii. What would I miss? What would you advise?

Thanks

Nikon Z6 Olympus E-M1
