Wrong hobby then! Especially if you like gear. No one likes it, but the camera is not an investment, it's an expense.
Honestly, for you with the landscape shots, the D800 or D800e is the way to go. It was made for landscapes, super fine detail, superior dynamic range. It's a workhorse.
Have you read Thom Hogan's "The tip of the iceberg?" It would put the body purchase in perspective. It's a little dated now but still holds true.
Get the body, start using it. Then gradually start acquiring the lenses. Set acquisition goals: 14-24mm, 24 pc-e... You can't buy it all overnight, it's a lifetime hobby.
