The angle of view of the 14-24/2.8 corresponds to an angle of view in DX of a 21 to 35mm lens and you are correct, this is not a ultra wide lens for DX. Nevertheless, 21-35mm is an almost ideal range for landscape photography and I have taken some nice pictures with this lens on a D200. At focal lengths below about 21mm, geometric distortions for every wide angle lense become apparent.

When it comes to IQ, the 14-24/2.8 is outstanding and comparable to the best prime lenses.
