Firstly, thank you everyone for contributing to this thread and help point me in the right direction.
Doug i have sent you a email yesterday. Thank you.
Erik, sorry, i should be a little clearer on what i mean on DR (most probably not the best term to use). Really if i could get the sameor slightly greater DR that i get from my 5D2, that would be great, though i am more concerned in how it renders tones. With the 5D2 when we are getting close to pure white its like it hits a wall and looks very abrupt. I am chasing subtle tonal changes from light to dark, not a hard banging, clipping looking tonal transition. I hope this makes sense, i do apologise for the my lack of technical description. Thank you for sharing the photos, can i ask what back you used for these and can i assume the first shot was the raw unedited file?
Jeffery, i do shoot a lot of coastal shots with water, beaches, rivers. I also shoot in the mountains and on occasions city scapes. I do work in the photographic industry though not as a full time photographer. This camera is being purchased mainly for a hobby use, i do sell prints, i do do client work however it is not my main source of income. I am simply a keen photographer.
Fred, thanks for sharing those links. I am sitting on the fence with the d800e, from what i have seen, i am not totally convinced as of yet.
Thanks again for your assistance
EDIT: At the moment i am leaning towards the Mamiya DM33 Kit (i think it is the same as the Leaf Aptus 11 7 back just re branded). I will keep searching around for one with in my price range.
