If you can limit yourself to 35mm or 50mm for landscapes, at least the new Zeiss primes look quite good.

The lens options (for me) are limited, as I would only have the 28-70 which is not really wide enough and 3.5 - 5.6 is pretty slow. I know there is a 24-70 f4 available in about 3 months but even so it's not that fast and starting to get heavier!

And to put it kindly, both MTF and the samples from the kit 28-70 open/stopped down have been crap.  The 12-40 is in a different universe (heck, so is the 14-45!) and we don't even have a MTF for the 24-70 Zeiss to begin to compare.

Without lenses, there is no IQ advantage for a XXX MP body regardless of maker.
