(head smack) Wouldn't that depend on the specific landscape in front of your camera  and where you end up setting up your tripod and at what height and what the light is doing? No two places are alike are alike just as no two personal visions of what you want the final photograph to look like.

Certainly the best lens for any particular landscape with foreground would depend on all those things. But that wasn't the question. Some people might still have a favorite, across the board and having regard to the practicalities of not owning an infinite number of lenses. I like the 24mm (or equivalent) focal length for that kind of shot, for its balance of depth of field and field of view. There will be many circumstances in which it would not be the best possible lens, but it is one I like to have available all the time.
