Hello Leonard, The image quality of the D800 might pleasantly surprise you with its DR and color depth and fine resolution. But you will be restricted to a few Perspective Control lenses that Nikon(3 fl's) makes or a limited number of 3rd party brands such as Samyang which makes a 24mm tilt and shift for a reasonable price..
The most common landscape PC lens by Nikon is the 24mm f/3.5 that is a bit over $2000.
If you want more control but a larger less portable rig there is the various rail systems with billows by companies like Horseman.
You likely know more about those offerings than just about anyone on this forum since you have been using these capabilities with your view camera.
I think you would find no problem associated with the D800e not having an AA filter, it is rarely seen to be a problem but the additional sharpness would likely be appreciated coming from a view camera.
The D800e would be the only SLR that would give the larger format cameras a run for it, yet has the added advantage of good low light, high ISO performance.
If you are really curious and not able to try out the D800 with local photographers, you could rent one, and a 24 PC-E lenses for a weekend to see it is really fits your needs.
Good luck with your choice.
