Re: Why just 2 for landscapes?

I will probably go for a mixed bag, but still only two lenses.

Keep my 16-35 and add the 55 F1.8. The 65 mm F2 is too heavy for me. I don't think I would use the 85 often, although it looks like a very nice lens. So I rather save the weight and enjoy the hike more.

That is an excellent combo.

Just one thing: if you are interested in landscapes mainly, the cheap and light Sony 50mm f/1.8 is actually sharper than Zeiss 55m f/1.8, from f/5.6 to f/22. I have both, and prefer the 55mm for portraits (less CA, sharper wide open, faster and quieter AF), and 50mm for landscapes (sharper closed down).
