Is 16-35 a mere reportage lens & 24mm a true landscape lens?

There was a recent discussion about whether 16-35 is a landscape lens. Someone was of the opinion that if we take pictures with a fixed professional series lens, for example 24mm lens, that would be a landscape shot and the shots with 16-35 even if taken at 24mm cannot be truly termed as landscape shots.

A section of the debators were of the opinion that while 24mm (1.4) is a landscape lens, 16-35 is a lens for making reports.

I am quite confused about it. Would the forum philosophers help me dispelling this confusion?

In short the issue is:
Is 24mm (1.4) a landscape lens while 16-35 is a mere reportage lens?

Thanks and regards.
