I really like the look of the images from the 645D.

Is the Nikon D800E expected to match this level of quality ???

At base ISO, perfect conditions, no. But then you'll have $7000 leftover to spend on glass, studio lighting, etc. and here's a novel idea: you could even organize a couple of trips to beautiful locations where you'll capture great landscape images

In terms of versatility there's obviously no contest.

As someone else said the D800 gets you close enough.

And where does the quest for perfection end anyway? You buy the 645D for $10,000 and pretty soon you'll be looking at Hasselblad and Phase One samples thinking "now if only I spend another..."
