To my eyes actually 5DII has an edge for lower ISOs as well, look at
the right edge of ISO 800 crop for example. Also when I convert D3X
files using NX2 the grain pattern is coarse and intrusive, while 5DII
grain pattern is very tight and it doesn't show up in prints or when
you resize it.

The point here is that Nikon is charging about
price(D3x)-price(D3)=~$4000 for D3X sensor only, while Canon is
giving you a better sensor plus a 5DII body and goodies like full HD
video for $2700, they deserve credit for this.

Yes but dpreview still only gave a score of 9.0 for value the same as for D700.
If it was the other round I am sure they would give 9.5 for D700 and Canon 8.5.

I dont know what dpreview is playing at because their tests particularly high ISO tests they seems to avoid side by side comparison when it disadvantaged Nikon such as the 5DMk2 vs D3x or sRAW1 vs D700. Their critcism of Canon in their pros and cons even trivial matters is more eager yet similar shortcommings from Nikon barely gets a mention.

I agree but only for ISOs over 800. Under 800 the D3x actually has
the edge by a very small margin, DxO found the same thing also.

The 5D2 doesnt have a "one stop advantage" as some people claim...
