Default Canon 24-70mm f/2.8L vs Nikon 28-70mm f/2.8 AF-S

Tomorrow I will be the proud owner of a Nikon F4s to go with my Nikon F2
and pre-AI Nikkor glass. I know that I will have to have the older Nikkors
AI'd in order to meter properly, but fortunately I have somebody who can
do that for me (something about filing the mount to couple with the AI
meter?).

I had been thinking about upgrading my Canon 28-135mm IS with the 24-70mm
f/2.8L, but now that I will have a splendid Nikon pro body again, I was
wondering if it would not be better for me to spend the money on a Nikkor
28-70mm f/2.8 AF-S instead of the Canon lens?

What to do???
