There's not a macro lens made by Nikon that is best at landscape distance, so while it's suitable for landscapes, it's not the best for landscapes. I own a handful of 55 micro Nikkors, and used to own both of the 60's as well (new and old). But it's not going to be a coke bottle either. It's all going to depend on how picky you are. I could never be happy with the performance of any of the Nikon macro lenses at landscape, but I'm very picky. Others might be fine. Hard for us to tell you what you'll feel. But in a general sense, they are designed for performance up close, and generally will trade off some ultimate distance performance to gain performance up close.
