Very good DX landscape lens needed
2 months ago

I'm getting away from full frame and sticking with DX crop bodies like the d5200 and d7100. I've done plenty of reading on this that and the other, I really wonder if I should go with the highly admired f2.8 17-55 DX lens, or save a little $$ with the 16-85, which I think is a 3.5-5.6 variable aperture. On a landscape lens I don't see the need for 2.8 or even f4, but I do want good glass and good images. Is there much difference in image quality between these two lenses or perhaps another that I've failed to mention? I'm needing a good landscape lens ASAP. What's your recommendation?
