You don't need an f/2.8 lens for landscape, so you are paying for a feature you don't need.

The ideal landscape lens from a specs standpoint is the 12-50mm f/3.5-6.3. The apertures on that lens is just fine for landscapes. If only it had better image quality.

It depends on a certain light, etc. There are times when I have used f2.8 or even bigger for landscapes. Misty mornings/evenings, under heavy cloud, and so on and so forth.

In addition, unless you have way more money than sense, you buy a lens like the f2.8 12-35 for /multiple/ purposes -- not just landscapes.

I know I can’t afford to have special lenses just for landscapes -- I use all my lenses for everything.

The 12-35 is my dog lens. Not saying it's bad ... it's what I use to shoot pics of my dog. Still looking for a decent cat lens....

Let's not forget the brick wall lens as well
