What is the "best" lens in 24mm-35mm range for 5dIII landscapes?

24 TSE Mk 2
Zeiss 25 and 35 primes
Contax zeiss 35-70/3.4
Nikon 14-24mm G

And apart from the tsp they are all manual focus, gets you into good habit using live view and focusing manually!

All better than the canon zooms you have for landscapes...

Haven't tried the new 24-70 Mk 2 yet. If it as good as my zeiss 35-70/3.4 then it will replace both the zeiss and my 24-105 L travel zoom...

I need a good, high quality wide angle prime for landscapes. I typically carry zoom lenses for flexibility , but i would like to get the absolute best IQ, color and contrast for my landscapes. My widest prime is 50mm

My Canon zooms:
17-40 f4 L
24-70 f2.8 L
70--200 f2.8 L IS II
100-400 f4.5-5.6 L IS
