$1100 difference with rebate

Was a long time Nikon user, Nikkormat FT2, FM, D50, D80, D5000 (I think I'm missing a few). Really didn't like the D5000 so went old school with Pentax for awhile (MF lens on a 6MP body).

It was fun but really wanted to experience Full Frame.

About 6 months ago a used Canon 5D showed up at my local shop for $475.  I bought it and a 40mm Pancake.

Really, Really fun.  I can't believe how much easier it is to shoot with a "regular" size viewfinder.

Anyway, I have just the one lens. So not a big investment in Canon gear.

Found out I might be working in a rain forest for a few months and of course the Canon 5D isn't weather sealed.

Went to my local shop today to take a look at the Nikon D600 and the 24-120m f/4.  Very nice rig.

After about 10 mins I zoomed the lens on to a camera box at the other end of the counter.

It was a Canon 6d kit bundled with the Canon 24-105 f/4  for $2199!!!

That's $1100 cheaper than the Nikon D600 & 24-120 combo ($3299)

The Canon is on an instant rebate.

Would rather have the Nikon but I'm having a problem justifying the extra $1100.

Any rebates coming soon?

Any other suggestions?

I priced a d7000 and the 24-120 but it's the same price as the Canon 6d, and I would prefer full frame.
