Have you tried the D7000 on the tripod for low ISO landscape? The noise and DR large major strong points of that camera. The read noise is so low that none of the currently available Nikon's are better. You already have a great DX camera for your style of shooting and would gain slightly in resolution using the D7000 for DX than using the D800 in 1.5 crop mode.
If paired with the lenses that can take advantage of the 36mpx, and shooting full frame, the D800 and D800e will give some real advantages for landscape. If you want to upgrade and shoot full frame, that is a good enough reason to go for the D800. If your main goal is use your current lenses in crop mode, it is not such a good deal, not when you already have the D7000. The D800 in crop mode would be a step up, however, over your D300s
