Should I jump ship and go for a 5DMKII ?

Don't get me wrong here, I love my D700 and all my PC-E lenses for landscape work which I enjoy to do yet.....

If Nikon does not announce a D700X/D800 by years end i am considering jumping ship to canon because yes I do like to print 20x30 on my 24" HP Z3200 PS printer

and with canon's newer 24mm PC -E lens I am tempted. I know having more mp will not make me a "better" photographer and yes I only use the best lenses, always use a tripod, Cable release and shoot with the mirror up all the time so my technique is sound. Nikon is a superior camera I know this, build quality, etc and I wish I can afford a D3X but it's out of my budget. I did own a A900 for a few months which I loved but when I got turned onto the PC-E lenses this opened up a whole new world for landscape work which sony/minolta do not offer. I went Nikon because I really believed they were going to have a 24mo camera out by years end but now I am getting a little nervous With the rumor of the D700S coming out, I also thought that maybe Nikon will also upgrade the D3X also, and skip coming out with a 24mp D700.

Any thoughts or am I crazy??
