I just wanna say that landscapes are not really a wide angle thing so much.
Lots of landscapes, when you get out there, end up done on a normal or short
tele lens.
I was reluctant us shoot landscapes with my Hasselblad because all I had was a 150
when a few years later i added a normal and wide angle lens I took that
Hasselblad system out.
Ended up using the old 150(c) for the majority of my shots.

The framelines for a 50 in an M6 .58 are going to look positively telephoto.
They do already with the .72
someone who wants to do landscapes I'd recommend the .72.
I've shot lots and lots of landscapes with both my 90 AND my 135.
Lots of land is OUT there! you need some REACH! You don't want the road your
standing on!
