The only time a zoom equals a prime for landscapes is if you are equipped with a set of wings which will enable you to fly over obstacles such as rivers, streams and valleys. With those wings, you simple fly to the point in which your prime is the correct focal length.

If you don't have wings at the present time; I suggest that a zoom (or even better a pair of zooms on a pair of cameras) is the best option. Top-line zom lenses provide excellent quality imagery.

However, top-line zoom lenses like the 17-55mm f/2.8 IS and 70-200mm f/4L IS are expensive. Less expensive,however, than an assortment of primes to cover the focal range...
