I wanted a telephoto length and I don't mind that it's a prime.  I would use this mainly for distant landscape shots.

Thanks!

Fact that you are using it for distant landscape shots means you have to stop the lens down, go luck handholding a tele lens without IS unless you are planning to use a tripod all the time...

I personally would go with the f4 IS version for your intended purpose.
