16mm for landscapes ???

Can anyone give me some feedback on using the Nikon 16mm (fish) for landscapes. The lens will be used on a D70. The reviews seem to be pretty positive on the lens.

This lens has a lot of appeal to me because it is VERY small and I'm looking for the smallest DSLR for a bike/hike setup.

Edit: I'm also considering the Tokina 17mm. Any comments on that lens would be appreciated.

Well, I'm using the 17-55 for landscapes and I love what it churns out, but it has been noted as one of the sharpest lenses yet. It's not small in the least, so if you're looking at a 16 that's small, I'd say go for it. I was originally looking at the 12-24 but for a lot of factors, went with the 17-55. Not sure if I'd class the 16 as a fish but it should be just terrific for landscapes! Let us know what you decide. Cheers, S
