Leica has always had 75 mm lenses. Voigtlander has made a couple of good ones as well. Admittedly they are not common for SLRs, but that is their loss. 75 mm is a great landscape lens.

well I think that for most people a 75mm lens will not primarily be a landscape lens

I know the 3:2 format is a bugbear of yours, but you are clearly in the minority.

Yes , that is true .  BUT almost any high end mirorless offers optional ratios

I also would like to add that while I get contracticted many times on this point , I have seen VERY few people posting portraits in that 3;2 ratio

Some people on these forums are keen to let me know that this is not a big deal and yet most of their images ( if not all of them) shot in vertical orientation in a camera with a 3;2 native ratio are cropped to a less oblong shape

As they say , actions speak louder than words
