Choice, remember you will be capturing from f/8 to f/16 but mostly f/11 for front to far in focus DOF so no fast glass needed except for night landscapes with stars and Milky Way where an f/4 will be fine. The Sony E 10-18 f/4 works both APS-C 10mm -18mm = 15mm -27mm and full frame 12mm - 18mm if rear light shield is removed, a good lens to keep if you start with a APS-C camera and move up to full frame. Also do not worry about Polarizing filters with wide angles for they only are good at 45 degrees from the sun But for moving water and fall colors yes filters attachment is nice to have. Keep handy when out your kit 24-70 or longer for that far way image that you can also do a small hand held panorama, for landscapes are not just wide but of open areas or not!!! If full framing and want a panorama like image say the Grand Canyon with so much to see try the not well known Voigtlander 10mm f/5.6 when you do not have panorama gear but get a 3:2 image also works great on Sony's and very small.
