d610 and 1 lens for landscapes

Hi All,

I'm been wanting to upgrade my d5100 to 2 cameras.
One smaller, maybe mirror-less for travel/city photography (want something lighter to carry around all day). But I may keep the 5100 for awhile still.

But I'd also like a full frame for landscape shots when I travel (Iceland, Switzerland, Norway, Canada are all coming up in the next year.

I'm not worried about the weight too much in this case (car travel and/or minimal hiking).

I'm on a budget so looking at a d610. What 1 landscape (prime or wide zoom) would you recommend on on a budget?

For a prime the Samyang 14mm 2.8 sounds promising...any thoughts on this or other similar options?
