Primes will give you a little more sharpness and maybe detail. But for me, I like the versatility of Fuji's wonderful 10-24 / 18-55 / 55-200 combo.

Normally I would totally agree with you, however, in some images Chris Dodkin (mod) posted I was able to crop to do a direct comparison between the 14mm and 10-24mm which I've previously posted with his permission.

In all cases 14mm on the left, 10-24mm on the right. Hopelessly unscientific but very interesting ...

There's wood grain you get to clearly see in the 10-24mm shots that is not even visible in the 14mm prime shot.

I don't think one could conclude anything firm from the above but it certainly suggests the 10-24 is one stellar lens, which I think would be perfect for landscape work.
