I've rented the 24L mkII for landscape use ... and I decided to stick with my 28mm lens instead. Yeah, they're not the same focal length, but they're close enough that I still get basically the same shot, plus the 28mm is about a quarter the price, and about 4x more portable.

I had a difficult time choosing between the 24L and the 21 Zeiss. I ultimately chose the 24L since the Canon is a lot more versatile and I don't shoot landscapes as much as I want. But if landscapes is the primary reason for getting a new lens, then I would definitely look at the Zeiss.

I would think the 24 TS-E L II would be the ultimate landscape lens.

Yup, full of win.

Well, I ordered a nwe lens from BH. But I did not go with the 24L. Instead I went with the 35L and decided to keep my 17-40L for landscapes. I think I'll be happy. Going to sell my 50 and 70-200 now. Thanks for the replies guys!

I'd prefer 35L on full frame FOV wise. I do like the weather sealing and better coatings of the newer 24L II though. Have fun with it, I liked my 35L.

I originally wanted a 35mm but felt like I could make some extra cash to fund it if I sold my 17-40L. But I think I'll just be as happy with the 35 which is a well known lens.

What would you guys say is a good landscape lens for a crop but can be used for a full frame later down the road?

17-40 is great on FF. Not sure on crop, you could go wider at 16-35

Buy a lens for your camera. They hold their value well and can be resold for close to or MORe than what you purchased them for.
