Up until the past year, there have been some tradeoffs (mostly in favor of Canon).  However, the Nikon 24-120/4, 70-200/4, and the 1.8 prime series seem to almost tip the balance in favor of Nikon.  Nikon's 28-300VR is better an cheaper in every way.  Canon's tilt-shift lenses are still clearly superior.  Canon is clearly ahead if digital cinema is your goal, although much of the gain is had by using legacy Nikon lenses with an adapter (which you can't do the other way around).

Also, a number of Sigma 3rd party lenses are excellent for both, thus leveling the playing field.

Well said, Doug.
