Xpro-1 is a well made machine... but...contrast detection... no thanks....

Xpro-2........... if it has phase detection and weather sealing, and a few more lenses... thats gonna start some serious discussions about the future of canikon...

No it won't.  No Rangefinderesque camera will ever replace a DSLR for sports.

SO why exactly do I keep hearing the statement that Canon has better lenses?

The very latest Mark II versions of Canon 24-70 and 70-200 f/2.8 lenses are incrementally better.  But their price tags are eye-watering.  Still they should be considered if owning such lenses is your eventual goal.  Frankly I think from a print sales perspective, Canon's white paint is worth as much or more than any difference in IQ.  Customers recognize the lenses.

I thought the nikkor 24-70 and 14-24 were pretty good.. what makes the offerings from canon better...?

I could type it out for you, or you could go read the reviews here by dpreview.
