i.e., Is it crazy NOT to want an UWA zoom?

Never seen the lens this cheap.

I've been shooting landscape for years and I've never owned a 16-35 equiv lens. Only time I've shot ultra wide angle on a mountain is with my new iPhone 11. I don't know if I'd get the 10-24 and wonder how I ever lived without it or I'd still gravitate towards my 16-55. Some of my favorite English landscapers make fine use out of their 24-70 equiv.

Do you think it's nuts that I haven't gotten the 10-24 as an avid landscape shooter?

Not at all.   Landscapes aren't defined by how wide a perspective that can be had - telephotos are often enough used for landscapes as well.

For the occasional want for an UW perspective, you have the 14mm.  Additionally, you can use the 14mm and/or the 16-35 to stitch for an UWA result.

Yet, wants and needs may well evolve over time.

I'm also wondering if the 10-24 will be updated as Fuji has promised us one zoom lens will be refreshed.

I  wouldn't know.
