    Hmmmmmmm. What have you already got and what are you into.

    Suggestions for Landscape would be different to portrait, etc:

    I've just got the standard 28-70 lens, I've only really shot landscapes, but am looking to try and diversify what I can photograph

    The 16-35 is a very good UWA zoom so would be very good for landscapes. The "old" 24-70 is reasonable value but if I as buying today I'd definitely get the 24-70 f2.8 G lens.

    I've recently bought a voigtlander 15mm for a little over$1000 Inc freight from the USA and it's quite a lot of fun to use. Very sharp and manual focus and aperture.

    The 16-35mm can be used as 24-52mm on your a7 when the aps-c mode enabled so virtually you get two lens in one. So you have UWA zoom lens and a normal zoom lens if need be.

    If weight isn't too much of an issue and you're interested in branching out, maybe the 24-135mm?
    It's a far stretch though, I'd admit
    https://www.cinema5d.com/sony-28-135...ine-zoom-lens/

    Reason I mention it is because focal length-wise, looks like you're making due with the current set, and if you need wider, you can always take an extra photo or two

    The 135 gives a bit more stretch, and it also has video filming aspects in its design

    Diverse enough?
