Nikkor vs Canon L... Too broad a comparision

So, I'm thinking of re-doing my camera set up and a d7100 is top on my list.  I've been trolling some threads here and hear similar gripes as Canon folks.  Pretty funny.  Anyway, I'm wondering if the Nikkor lenses are on par with Canon's L series?  I have the 24-105 and 70-200 f4, both L series.  I also have a Tamron 17-50 f2.8.  What are your opinions in the quality comparisons to Nikkor equilavent?  Additionally, I am considering dropping my 70-200 and going with either a 70-300 or 100-400.  I want reach!  What Nikkor would you recommend in comparison?  Thanks



One cannot simply state whether "L glass" is better or worse than Nikon. Too much variability within the "L" series" and Nikon's "L glass equivalent" (whatever that is !).
