50mm will be too narrow for most landscape applications. In fact, 35mm would be limiting usually. And there are plenty of very good 24mm options. How much is your budget?

I had a Soligor 24mm f/2.8 (made by Tokina) on Minolta MD mount that was excellent but heavy (full metal and a huge front element) and had it delivered for $40.

Also, why not consider Sigma 19mm? And what is it that you don't like about the 16mm? Its 24mm equivalent FoV is rare for a prime lens.
