I shoot with both systems and sold a D700 for a 5DII. I did this specifically to use alt lenses as well as MF Nikkor lenses on one camera body. The 5DII sensor is very nice; however, it does not handle high ISO nearly as well, especially in the shadows. Nikon/Sony clearly has better sensors these days and I am not sure why you would consider a 5DII over a D600 (except for the price difference)?
IMO, this would be a poor move for you.
My own personal story has been a mixed bag. I have been unable to find a good Canon zoom in the 24-70 range. After several attempts and returned lenses I was not able to get a sharp copy of the 24-70; one failed attempt with a 24-105 and finally a returned 28-70. I have given up. The 5DII has performed well with my Canon long glass and alt lenses, but I am not happy with the 5DII shadow performance or the lack of a good standard zoom (at least for me). I will not pay the absurd 24-70II price.
If you are not looking at Canon long glass, stick with Nikon.
