Re: After the dust has cleared....

My guess is differnce will be minimal in IQ. You need to decide if the extra pixels and the extra body quality are worth it for you. Since you do landscapes, and if money is not an issue, I'd say D800E for you. The D800 body is better, but it's also larger and heavier, so, take your pick!

Waiting for DXO mark numbers to show up....but not buying for a few months anyway.

Yeah...I know the DXO numbers don't reflect real world numbers, but they ARE consistent between cameras as their methods are solid.

So any difference in the marks should translate to a real world all the bases will translate to real world experience.

Whatever I get will have to be in place for at least 3 years. So taking my time.
