18mm is plenty "wide enough" for landscapes, and the difference between 16 and 18 is not much.

The difference between 16mm and 18mm on DX is quite a bit. It's nearly the equivalent of 24mm vs. 28mm on FF. The difference is considerable enough that Nikon makes both a 24mm and 28mm f/2.8D lens.

Yes, I'm aware.  I own the 24 D.  I just personally don't consider it that big a deal, and this concept out there that you need a really wide lens to shoot good landscapes is silly.
