At the risk of being beaten by the admins, I thought I would start another photography thread, this time on landscape.

Great photos guys. One of my main goals after I get my FWC is to do more landscape photography. Head to Utah a lot and meet my friend for that now. He tries to spoil me with his new 5th wheel but I'm not buying into it. Come on retirement!
 
Ok I'll play but hard to compete with the real pro's... ;)

I don't want to derail the thread but what lens are some of you using for landscapes? The first couple I was using a 18-55 kit lens. The last couple are with a 17-40 f4 L and to be honest, I don't think it does that great of a job. Nothing like the 70-200. Is there a lens that take photo's like 70-200? or is a lens that capable out of reach pricewise...
 
I use everything from the Nikkor Holy Trinity (less one, it's a Tokina 16-28/2.8) to even the 500/4 at times. Most of the work is done with the 16-28, a 24-70/2.8, a 70-200/2.8, and a 24mm tilt shift. The tilt shift is by far the sharpest and most versatile (and frustrating).

One thing not mentioned is support. I am a big fan of very sturdy tripods and ball heads.
 
I guess I'll play a little too and add these -
