As photographic companies go, Nikon is far superior to Canon in so many ways that have nothing to do with lens and camera comparisons.

Can you explain this part? right now Nikon is slammed for having terrible customer service and very restrictive repair policies.

You just have to know the histories, and you have to consider how these two companies have progressed from year to year. What are their goals for the end user? Canon's photography arm is a profit center within a very large company, and I believe this has shown through for decades. It isn't hard to see, unless you would rather not.

If I were in your position and wanted full frame right now, I think I would get the best deal I could get on a 5DII. It is a known quantity, and its sensor stands up well against the latest from Canon. Some users even claim it is superior.

No one claims 5D2 is better than 5D3 or 6D. 5D2 presents rather poor value in light of 6D.

Again, read your own forum. I think the consensus, last time I checked, was that Canon did everything possible to cripple the 6D. That comes from your forum, not mine.  And on the surface, it appears they made a good job of it.  I believe some of those guys in the Canon forum.  I would go for a good deal on a 5DII.
