I think there's a natural progression of lens choice for landscape photographers. People love the wide angle lens. No doubt, it's an awesome lens. In fact, I still use my ALL THE TIME. However, I get tired of those epic wide angle scenes that fit everything into the frame. It's counter-intuitive, I know. After the wide angle, people move to the 70-200mm lens for landscape photography.
