depends what type of camera u using... if film slr probably a 17-40mm L lens... for dslr can use sigma 12-24mm lens... one thing tho... there is no such thing as a specific type of lens for a specific shot... u can also take landscapes with telephotos... depends on teh effect u want...

I play safe and use a 24-135mm.... decent wide angle and telephoto.... good compromise on either end.... :D

For Landscape : Canon 17-40 F/4 L
For portrait : Canon 70-200 F/4 L
Just bring these 2 good enough already.
The setup quite light also...
