Best landscape camera
I'm taking a trip out west and I'm planning on ditching the 4x5 and shooting some landscapes on my 5D III with TS-E lenses.
But the Mark III has vastly worse image quality. So... Are there any affordable rental systems that have tilt shift lenses available? The Pentax D645? Hasselblad? I'd be renting for three weeks.

The 5DIII is one of the best FF DSLRs made. Put some L glass on the front and you should be good to go. Recommended L glass:
17-40 or 16-35 (16-35 if you need faster than F4)
24-105 or 24-70 (personally I prefer the 24-105 for handheld walk around use)
100-400 (hard the beat the combo of quality and range at a relatively low cost)
100 or 180 macro (also excellent for portrait work)

Hasselblad make a tilt/shift adapter which works with most (but not all) of their H lenses. I've hired it and it does a cracking job. I'd recommend the Hassey H System for landscape or any seriously considered photography. Some landscapers have moved to the Leica S2 as it has better weatherproofing but I don't think they have a tilt/shift adapter for it and I'm not sure the Hasselblad one will fit.
