I definitely fall into the camp that doesnt really use an UWA for landscapes and when I have tried it I have had very limited success. I have taken some really horrible landscape shots of spectacular views with the 7-14. I would post one but thankfully they dont make their way into my Lightroom.

If you are just saying that it doesn't work well for landscapes in your own personal case, I have no problem with that. But if you are saying that it isn't suitable for such use in general, I disagree and rather strongly so. I regularly use it for landscape shots, although certainly not for such shots only.

No. It is mostly me. I am not particularly a landscape person. I have seen a lot of really great landscapes out of this lens including yours. Even I have taken the odd one that I feel is pretty decent.

I just wanted to get away from a general assumption that wide angles are for landscapes. I probably take more landscapes with much longer lenses and the 7-14 is a very versatile lens.
