Interesting that so many people find wide angles useful for landscapes. The best landscapes that I see tend to be on medium and short tele lenses.

So much of the wide angle stuff is cliche, the big blue sky, the close foreground. I find most most used landscape lens is the 45mm f1.8 Olympus.

Personally, if I specialised in massive prints of highly detailed landscapes and was ultra-critical of the results, I'd find the choice of an M43 camera wonderfully eccentric. Talk about doing things the hard way.
