The tamron 15-30 is the choice pick with ease. It is without doubt, excellent.

That said.... I tried it for landscape as an only lens. Got some great images of course, but I found myself wishing for a longer focal length too many times. I would personally opt for the 24-70 myself. In fact I would be tempted to use the 24-120 over the 24-70.

I'm thinking... stopped down to F8-F11 you would be hard pushed to see any difference in image quality over either of the 24-70 lenses. It has VR too, is smaller and much lighter to boot. Great close focus, and that extra range is very much an added bonus indeed.
