Agreed.... Well done. Good score, too.

Yeah, ive used 18mm on full frame once and it was perfect , 18 on crop was wayy to long
I did not realise quite how bad the corners were, would use at f11/16 be good enough for landscape do you think?
Shooting at f/11 to f/16 you should get reasonable corners using the 5DII. Pixel-peeping you will notice some softness, but it is still good enough for printing.
If ultra-wide angle landscapes are your thing, then, in the longer term you may be better off looking at getting a 17mm prime.
But there is another, sort of equivalent technical solution that's much cheaper - HDR. Done properly with an intent to blend exposures as opposed to tone mapping, you can get very good results. Probably worth a try before spending $1K on filters.
Could not agree more. At the risk of negating Neuro's excellent response, technically tonemapping is a function of HDR, while blending exposures utilizes a different approach. Both lend themselves to loosening up that dynamic range through the use of multiple exposures.
BTW, is it common to use tilt shifts for landscapes?
