In my view, it is the glass which is the strength of Canon. I am always surprised when people speak of shifting systems because of a camera body. The glass is what you are stuck with and really buy into.

I'm curious about this comment (against the backdrop that I am unfamiliar with any Canon lens longer than the 200/f2.8 II). It's long been common knowledge and my personal experience that Canon UW and UWA lenses were weakish in outer zone performance and there are gaps in the prime lineup. Recent releases are changing that there's still work left to be done.

below 100mm Nikon wins more in lenses of the same class, for example 14-24, 16-35 VR, 35 F1.4G, 50 F1.8G, 85 G1.8G.

From 100mm onwards Canon has a clear advantage over nikon counter part., for example 100 F2, 100L, 135L,  70-200II, 70-300L, 100-400L. In fact since telephoto shots more often than not are shot at mid-range ISO, canon's low ISO DR disadvantage is not so obvious. So peopel who shoot while life or action should really stick to Canon.

By the way, I totally agree with your premise and IMO another good reason to consider using both brands (if one is so inclined to tote two cameras to begin with which I am).

I agree.

Try the Nikon 105 DC.  One of the best lenses going.
