Uselfulness of the 28-135 range with a 1.6x multiplier?

Hi all!

I plan on buying the new 10D this summer, and after some info gathering the lenses i chose to go along with it were:

the 28-135IS and a 50mm f/1.8 in the beggining and later a Sigma 15-30mm and 70-300IS.

My problem is i won't be able to buy the other 2 lenses for a few months, so the 28-135 will have to serve most purposes for a while.

What worries me is if it's range combined with 1.6x factor (turning the lens into a 45-216mm equiv), will be enough for landscape photography!?!

I currently own a S40 and i've just checked the focal lenses used in the shots i took last summer. A lot of them were at 7.1mm -> 35mm equiv.

You can check some of my pictures here:

and check these also, if you don't mind:

So my question is: is the 28-135 wide enough for this kind of photography?

Best regards,
Luís Camacho
