I'm a Canon guy (5DMIII) would love to hear what your "go to" landscape lenses are. What do you have in your bag? I'm looking to pick up my first "wide angle", would love to hear your suggestions.

Thank you!

I am a landscape shooter and just spent two months travelling and camping in the US Southwest, and used the following lenses on my 5DMk3 (and also on my 1DMk4) in order of frequency of use:

24-105mm f/4L IS Mk I ... underrated in my opinion, most versatile lens I own

16-35mm f/4L IS 

70-200mm f/4L IS

300mm f/4 IS ... I used these last two alone, and also with a 1.4X TC.

I found that these four lenses did virtually everything I needed to do. Make sure you also have a tripod and a remote release. It helps to have two bodies, so you don't have to change lenses as much if conditions make the process "hazardous" (say in sandy Antelope Canyon)!

I carried along a few other lenses, but never ended up using them (24mm f/2.8, 24mm f/3.5 TS, 50mm f/1.4, 100 mm f/2.8 macro). I'll leave them at home next time.
