Lens for landscape photography with Full Frame?

Hello Everyone,

I have a 5DII and am looking for a good lens for landscape pictures. I would appreciate any guidance that the experienced photographers can provide. My criteria:

1. Should be prime

2. Inexpensive

3. Good Very good colors

4. Ideally fast - aperture of 2.8 or more.

5. At least as wide as 35mm.

Some additional information:

1. I have the 24-105. Love the picture quality, but want to see if I can get anything better.

2. I also have the Canon 50mm F1.8. Not that impressed with the color tones.

3. I'm planning to buy a Samyang 14mm. I've seen good reviews on it. The manual focus is something I'd prefer (I also own a Fujifilm X-E1 and am planning to use it with the Samyang).

4. Not a pixel peeper. My focus is on good colors.

5. Would like to do minimal post processing.

6. I love to take pictures during the golden hour. And hence, would ideally prefer a fast lens.

Does such a lens exist? If yes, I'd really appreciate your feedback.
