If money is the issue, you will buy
24-85/3.5-4.5G VR (15-53/2.2-2.8 APS-C equivalent) $650
16-35/4G VR (10-22/2.5 APS-C equivalent) $1250
Total $4000
Of course no tele, then you probably get
70-200/2.8G VR $2,300 and if that is too much then
7-300/4.5-5.6G VR $523 and a pretty good lens

5D3 --- $3459
24-70f2.8 --- $2299

Total $5758 but no wide angle

However when you need the tele, you could go
70-200/2.8L ISII - $1830 better deal than the Nikon or if too much
70-200/4L IS - $1200 Awesome lens Nikon hasn't got an equivalent for or

70-300/4-5.6 IS $560 a little cheaper and similar to and a tad better than the equivalent Nikon

Same 'ol same 'ol - Nikon wins in the wides, Canon wins in the teles.
