T3i 18-135mm or D5100 18-105mm?

I know there are a million Canon vs Nikon threads (I've probably read them all myself), but I'm still indecisive enough to delurk and start a new one.

Canon pros

  • I've owned Canon cameras before (digital P&S, film SLR) and I like the controls and feel

  • 18-135mm has a slightly bigger range (I've analysed my past photos enough to know I would not be happy with the 18-55mm kit lens)

Nikon pros

  • better at low light

  • slightly faster continuous shooting

  • 18-105mm lens is higher quality than Canon 18-135mm

The advice in all the Canon vs Nikon threads seems to come down to liking how it feels, but is the difference in quality enough to favour Nikon anyway?
