For landscape work you have a huge gap in the wide to normal range. While the 28 won't completely fill the gap it seems like the ideal starting point. If you're set on the 135 vs 70-200 plus 28 dichotomy then the decision becomes clear. I recommend that you save the money you have set aside for the 2.0TC and wait to invest in a longer optic; with the new 28 and 70-200 tools you'll have more than enough to keep yourself busy.

I've lived with the gap since I got rid of a ho-hum mid-range zoom, but I feel the void. Wish I still had my 28mm f2 ais, but didn't use that FL enough when I shot DX.

I may have to get the 70-200 and 28 now, and add the 135 later.
