Nikon's offer is superior for all but FPS and possibly extreme ISO.

Oh really, let me see. Nikon is fat, slow, compromise vf/fps and inferior video codec. A beginner would have to spend $600 grip, $140 for NX2, and $1000 plus uncompressed HDMI out rig. Good luck in processing +200 nef in a 7i dual core cpu. usb 3 is not supported by sandy bridge so your going to have to upgrade to the up coming ivy bride with a minimum kepler gpu, another $1500 damage to the wallet!
