Reiginal Photoshoot: What camera would you use?

Hi guys,

If you were asked by a Govt. authority to do a photo-shoot - take 1000's of images for their photo/tourism stock image library and get well paid for it, what camera would you use?

While the majority of images would be used in their media and PR dept. there was no mention of enlargements over 16x20 inch.

Most of the images taken would be landscapes and close ups of things to see and do. I'd shoot in RAW.NEF and JPG at full rez.

I currently have a Canon 7D, 1D MKIV and Nikon D3s and pro lenses. I also have a couple of 4x5 Speed Graphics and Pentax 67 and lenses.

Now, if I get the contract would it be in my interest to buy a Nikon 800E or use what I have? I know a Phase One would be the bee's knees to use for this, but the outlay cost might not justify the return.

Your thoughts?
