To my mind one of the biggest advantages of Canon wrt your potential range of lenses is that you can go to an excellent 70-200mm f4 IS at half the price of the Nikon equivalent. I believe that the IQ advantage of full frame is marginal compared to the +- 50% higher cost.

I believe your best IQ for the budget would be a Canon 700d (or a 70d if you can find a used one at the right price) with the 18-135 IS, and a used 70-200mm f4 IS (Photozone "the sharpest Canon zoom we have tested to date"), followed eventually by a Tokina 11-16, one of the best WA lenses in that range.
