Prime vs Zoom if you are mostly interested in Landscape @f8-f11

To the experts here, I don't own many prime lenses for landscape. I am happy with my Tamron 24-70 & 70-200 as well as Sigma 24-105. I would like to lighten my camera bag and idea of using primes is quite appealing. Perhaps 24/28, 50, 85mm lenses.

My big doubts are if I am shooting between F8/F11, does the use of primes makes sense for sharpness overall. My main interested is very large prints, so I would like best corner to corner sharpness but for sure zoom lenses are easier but am I leaving IQ by not using primes with my D810?
