Core Impact vs. Canvas vs. Metasploit

For those who have been using one or more of the subj. products -

How do the products compare? What are the key technical adv/disadvantages of each product?

The cost of the products is different. There must be something about the technical part that is significantly 
different. I'm trying to figure that out.

My personal experience - both canvas and core support advanced agent chaining, modules are python-based.

I'm not sure how level2-3 agents in core map to canvas's helium but level0 seem to be pretty similar in the way 
syscalls are proxied/socket reuse (strikingly similar, i'd say :)

Encoders are similar in all three, e.g. xor, chunk, unicode/widechar. Is the price the only differentiator?
