16-35G VRII, 24-120VRII are two very comparable lenses. The third is missing.

My brother shoots Nikon and has the new 24-120. Honestly, it's OK at best and nowhere near the quality of the 24-105. My copy of the Canon lens is very good, and as you point out the curvature issues are easily solved in ACR by simply clicking the lens correction button.

Anyway, to each his own, but it isn't as simple as choosing a body. It's all about the system. And I'm betting when we get to see raw samples from each of these truly excellent cams the differences in resolution and noise will be minimal.

Never liked the Canon 24-105 myself. Sure, reasonably sharp, but not the best if straight lines are supposed to be in the image (can be solved with pp to some extend tho).

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.
