Certainly cost is going to be a factor. It has taken me a few years to get to this point. I have a D800E and just acquired a Df, magnificent images from that camera. I have three lenses for landscape photography, 16-35G/f4, 24-120G/f4 and the 80-400G/VRIII. Now through my PC in the backpack it is near 24lbs that I am carrying through the airport. There are several other items in the bag, i.e. SB800 flash, filters, batteries and chargers and some minor parts. I would forgo 24-70/f2.8 or any f2.8 lenses for landscapes. Adds weight and cost. The 18-35G is lightweight  and cost less than the 16-35G/f4 and probably a tad better images. My D800E has a battery grip that adds additional weight. I don't know why I carry it around for landscapes? Hope this gives some thoughts. Good luck on your decision.
