Now that I am shooting a D3x alongside my 5D mkII, the IQ comparison is dramatic to my eye especially the noise.

The problem with comparing Canon to Sony/Nikon is that Canon hasn't updated since being ambushed by the D700/D3x/D3s/A900 low noise juggernaut. Obviously, a collabration has not begun yet so the next Canon FFs will have a Canon sensor whether we like it or not which we will be living with for the next 3-4 years. It is this new sensor that will tell the tale of whether Canon needs to give it up or stay in.

I compared DPR's reviews and compared ISO/noise performance, Nikon is notably better than Canon. Even D7000 is better than 5DII in terms of noise, especially for ISO

If no for all the lenses, I would seriously think about D3s.
