Thanks Shibbs.  I don't know where I got the impression that the 10-18 wasn't great- must have been my imagination.  What do you think about the Zeiss 24mm?

I have a NEX 7 with the kit lens. I am looking for a really good landscape lens -could be prime or zoom. Is the Zeiss 24mm lens considered the best or is there something better. I don't mind waiting if there is something new coming up. I believe there is a 10-18 zoom but I'm not sure it is very good.

Thanks,

Most of us will tell you the 10-18 f4 is an excellent landscape lens. Google it they will all say the same. If your after a prime the 16 f2.8 is good choice as is your kit lens at 18mm. If your after a fast prime you could wait for the new zeiss 12mm 1.8. But why when most landscape shoots are taken during the day.
