Bail from the Nikon family?

I need some help from team yellow

I have a chance to trade all of my Nikon gear, D800, sigma 35 1.4, 85 1.8d, 80-200 2.8 push-pull zoom (older model, works well), 50 1.8d, and in return get a Leica M8 and a Leica 35mm f/2 Summicron.

I have checked online auctions and used prices at the big boys and the kits are pretty close if you bought them outright.

Thoughts? Downside? The Nikon kit will do just about anything save high speed sports. My most used lens is the 35mm. Another downside: Leica lenses would be at the rate of 1 every other year but I would probably not need want more than 2. (Ok, who am I kidding! but they are 2 grand each!)

Upside? I'd like to know from my Nikon brethren and sistren. Am I just becoming enamored of the red dot and should just pick up a Fuji or something and keep the big kit?

Thanks
