there is no one lens for landscape. A good inexepensive but sharp wide angle is the 10-18 stm
I like my 17-55 and 70-200. You can get great used lenses on this forum I would start with the 17-55 on a crop camera as it does wide and slight telephoto check out my zenfolio and gallery for my applications of those particular lenses good luck

Heya,

Landscape is a broad subject... literally.

Landscape doesn't automatically mean ultrawide angle lenses.

It really matters what landscape you're looking to go. There's a ton out there that needs telephoto for the landscape. So you really need to figure out what you want to capture and how close to it you'll likely be.

Your 17-55 already covers wide and short telephoto ranges just fine. So the question becomes... do you need wider than 17mm? Or do you need longer than 55mm?

Very best,

To be honest i was thinking to chose between Canon EF 24-105mm f/4 L IS USM and Canon EF 17-40mm f/4 L USM.
but i think i will chose the Canon EF 24-105mm f/4 L IS USM

TS-E 17mm F4
But its 3x your budget

I am guessing that you will want to stitch your photos together.

The TS-E lenses work really well because you don't have to move the camera body.

I have a TSE 24mm MK I I am selling that is very close to your price range.
Pm me if you are interested maybe we can work something out .

What country are you in ?

I have the 15-85, like it a lot. I prefer zooms for one thing, framing the shot is so critical, and that range covers probably most of what you are going to want when shooting a landscape. It's also a pretty sharp lens, a little distortion on the edges at wider angles, but I think that's partly a characteristic of most wide angle lenses.

What do you guys think?

The 17-40L offers you nothing over your existing Tamron 17-50. The 24-105L will give you some added reach, if you feel that is needed, but you will lose on the wide end. It's really more of a standard zoom for full frame -- the Canon EFS 18-135 STM would be a good alternative if you are looking for a single walk around landscape lens. Personally, I would look to add either a ultra wide angle, such as the Canon 10-22mm or 10-18mm, or a telephoto such as the 55-250 IS STM, depending on whether you need something wider or longer.
