Take ALL the gear to the photo shoot.

I agree with what bdp23 said, keep Canon gear and take the new Nikon gear out for a test run, if you dont like it, sell it and use the money to buy more canon gear.

A lens is probably included, they just didn't want to get bogged down in details in the winning announcement I bet.

Keep an open mind. Brand fanaticism is not all it is cracked up to be.

Congrats! Starting shooting with both brands can be a bit expensive so getting a chance to do it for free especially with the days with the specialist and photog is really something quite special. Just keep both!

just a few of my thoughts...

Congrats! Personally, I would test out the new camera and see what it can do for you and what you shoot. Then, price out both sides and see which can bring you more of what you want. For example, if the Canon body meets all your needs and selling the Nikon gear can get you the lens you have really wanted...go that route. Or, if the Nikon body better suits your needs, then sell your Canon gear and get the lens you really want for the Nikon body. In the mean time, I would enjoy the fact you have a main and a backup.....it just stinks that you can't interchange the lenses. All the guys I shoot with are Canon guys for the main purpose that we can swap lenses and we don't all have to carry our full array of gear. Having some of both, in my opinion, is not as useful as having more of one. You just need to decide which one is best for you.

Nothing against Nikon but why bother even opening the box? Sounds like that T1i is treating you right!
