Any interest in a line of Prime Landscape lenses?

I much prefer zooms for landscapes.

They're going to be plenty sharp stopped down for DOF.

And unless you don't mind the arbitrary FOV choices you have with whatever primes happen to be in your bag, then you're going to end up cropping, which negates any small advantage (in resolution) you'd get from shooting a prime in the first place. (Distortion is another issue and I like the idea of low zoom ratio, high quality zooms with no need for fast max apertures).

The biggest argument I see for shooting (landscapes with) primes is to shoot with a T/S lens.  Personally, I have never had the luxury, but would love to try one out at some point.
