I have to agree that it comes down to glass. I can't see anything in Nikon's line up that matches the 17-40, 24-105 and 70-200 F4s either for price or quality. I'm happy with my 5D2 as I was with my 5D, so any upgrade for me is likely to be to the 5D3, but not for some time yet.

I agree, and for one of my interests, birds, you can add the 400/f5.6 and the 100-400 zoom. Once you go past these in reach, the costs are in another league for both brands and I can't find an equivalent for the prime.

When a nice camera like the D800 comes along, I think people forget that you're buying into a system, not just the body. The best example of this is the NEX series. Killer sensors, great bodies, crap lens selection (unless you want to deal with clunky adapters).

I'll stick with the 5D III.
