With the D3 Nikon caught a lucky break, the headlong rush to more pixels was brought up short by the use of Nikons first sensor, a Full Frame (also Nikons first) with only 12 MP it performed well in terms of noise and thank's to the focus issues of the 1D MkIII there was a switch to Nikon. But was it because Nikon were unable to produce a highly developed sensor, because it seems unlikely that this was by design.
You come out with some rubbish flake. Sony make chips but don't design them! They are based on Kodak research who design them and then licence the design to Sony. To say the D3 was a lucky break is utter rubbish, and could be regarded as very brave by Nikon as mags always push for more pixels per chip/sensor. A few weeks after the D3's release a firmware update was provided which included the reference to the D3x, so it appears Nikon already had the sensor for it.
As to the question posed by the original poster, I would stick with Canon if you are use to the system and have a lot of lenses.
