There is no wrong answer here.

One thing to keep in mind is that until you switch and try the other side, you will never get rid of that nagging feeling wonder what the other side is like.  You've already sold your gear once, so you know that it doesn't cost that much to switch back if you regret your choice.

I've owned both the 5D III and D800e.  I prefer the D800e because of the extra DR.

You've had both the 5D III and a7r.  Think of the D800e as basically a slower 5D III with an A7r sensor.

One other thing to keep in mind is that there are many more new and used FF options on the Nikon side.  For example, if you do a lot of weddings or sports, you can later pick a used D3 for about $1600.  Makes for a great combination paired with your D800 landscape camera.
