Tom, if you had the 5d, you could do EVERYTHING. I thought about getting one as a back up, I have a 20d for that now.
A full frame sensor is great! The 20d does not have that, but my 1ds does.
I say if you had a canon before, stick with it, and if you had Nikon before thats ok too.
Both the cameras you mentioned are great. The money is also in the lenses, if you have any from film days, they may work with the digis.
If I had to have ONE camera, I would look into the 5D. Combined with an external flash you can take any shot you want.
If you want to do any outside shots and you dont want a 5d or better, I would go Nikon. From experience.
Ill help you any way I can! With good equipment, it makes it sooo much easier!
