Bring on the EOS 7D Mark II - Capture NX2 was my one remaining reason to stay with Nikon. If I need to go LR it might as well be with Canon.

Agreed. Just sold my D7100, one D300 and my wide angles. Newly acquired D700 goes on the market tomorrow. The rest will keep me shooting while I'm a short-timer.

Been shooting Nikon since the late '70s.

It's nice to see I'm not the only one considering this.  I nearly pulled the Nikon/Canon plug this last time around when I went to the D7100, but the 7D didn't offer the image improvement over the D300s that the D7100 did, and that's what I was looking for.  I'm not terribly impressed with the 70D, but right now the 5DMKIII and 7DMKII are on my short list.  If the 7DMKII is what it reasonably should be expected to be, I may be switching camps as well.

I've been selling off "good" glass in anticipation of this, and am down to an 18-200, 17-50 f2.8 Tamron, 50 1.8g, and two 80-200 f2.8's.  Everything else has been sold, so it won't be too painful a move if/when I pull the trigger.  I'm still hoping Nikon pulls something out of the hat having shot Nikon since the mid to late 1970's (except for a brief stint with an Oly E-1).  Canon never really "fit" me as well as Nikon, but with the way this has been going the last few years, I'll learn.
