...I'd run both since I have both systems. But I doubt I'll want to go with either exclusively. The 5DII gives access to some fantastic Canon lenses for which Nikon has no counterpart and vice-versa. At the pixel-level, Canon's still seem to offer higher acuity, while the ability to excavate every speck of detail from the shadow areas of the Nikon's I've owned is great, too. So, as long as I can afford to carry both systems, I'm inclined to. If I had to give one up, though...it probably would be for reasons of cost, and it likely would be the Nikon gear, which is generally more expensive and I don't care for Nikon's somewhat hostile policies regarding grey market gear.
