as a long time Nikon user, I think the 5DIII is the best all-round camera out there right now. From tests, the latest Canon 24-70 and 70-200/2.8s are the cream of the crop with fewer issues than current Nikon models. You miss out on the ultra-wide zoom end unless you want to adapt a 14-24. Canon has good primes and nothing Nikon makes is like the 85.1.2 - I simply like the rendition much much better. Their new IS telephotos are much lighter than Nikon equivalents if you carry them for awhile and the 5dIII will give you a better frame rate for BIF and other wildlife(could include kids in this category).

Quite frankly, if you are in a position to do so and since you are staring over, I would take out comparable kits side by side for a day to see which one works better for you.

Thanks for the feedback - I think that is what I am going to do. I love the resolution of the D800, but when I compare Canon's lens, their focal lengths somehow seem more appealing, and usually have better reviews. I wish Canon has bumped their sensor up to ~28 MP. The Canon 14mm f2.8 USM II, as an example, gets excellent reviews - the Nikon 14mm - not so much - so the only alternative is the 14-24, which is huge, or Zeiss, etc. Ughh.
