I am thinking to buy f2.8 lens for landscape photography and this lens is one of the options. the price also is affordable. I do not want to buy 12-24 because I cannot use filter. Is this lens still good or is there any options?

You could also look at the 16-35 f4 - As if you plan to use the lens primary for landscape, rarely would you be shooting wide open at 2.8 - In fact most likely stopped down to f56-f11 and anywhere in between!

If you want a 17-35mm maybe also look at the Tamron 17-35mm 2.8-4, its newer and a really good option, it has VC (VR) - though again in landscape you maybe shooting off a tripod and VC/VR isnt really a needed
