D800: Really serious shadow lifting

I've been using both systems for the last few years

I just picked up a minty original 5D to go with my 30D–although I may now actually sell the 30D since it's not significantly more portable than the 5D. I want to be able to use some of Canon's great specialty lenses, like the macros and TS-Es, and I find–especially now that the D800 meets my desire for more resolution with some subject matter–the 5D overall a more satisfying camera than the 5DII (far less pattern noise in shadows, and I can't rationalize $3500 for the 5DIII when the D800 already gives me great AF). Having a foot in both systems is the best of both worlds.

Nice. So, are you back to Nikon or keeping both systems?
