Thank you Ferguson and thank you everyone else for the wonderful comments!

Well I am not rich so money is SOME object
I can only get one and if I think I will be happy with the D800 I will happily pocket the 3k difference......

Not at all. Buying the D800 (or D4) after the D7x00 will mean you will get more, faster, sharper glass. Yes, you have the 500, but unless you are already a glass addict, you'll find a "need" for more. The 14-24 for example is stellar with the D800 -- it holds up nicely to the resolution for really WIDE landscapes.

Don't let that money get into the pocket and get dusty.

And yes, as mentioned, get the "E". I didn't, I wish I had.

Landscapes make up approximately 2% of my shooting. But perhaps that would change if I had a killer combo like the D800e and 14-24. Then I would need something in the mid range, perhaps a 70-200.... then a smaller tele for when I don't feel like lugging the 500 around. Maybe a 300/4 VR if it ever sees light of day. Or I could just get the D4 and forget the rest.
