Landscapes? If you dont have a lot of expensive glass,
Sell everything and Buy d800 and 14-24.
Thats the best setup you can have right now.
No point in switching to nikon if your not gonna get the 14-24

Buy the D800 and maybe a Nikkor 14-24mm f/2.8G ED AF lens but keep your Canon lenses and 5D body. Use the Nikon for your landscapes and the 5Dc for casual shooting. Why be invested in one system when you can have both? Each system has advantages.

I hear 14-24 is remarkable, but would a prime lens (or two) be better specifically for landscapes? Perhaps even Zeiss manual focus? What is your opinion? Thanks!
