Which lens mount offers the best lenses?

3 months 1 week ago #684030 by Callumatic
I am looking at getting a lens adaptor to expand the range of lenses I can use.

I'm wondering which mount offers the best lenses? My camera has an EF/EF-S mount (90D). But when it comes to other mounts (Nikon, Sony, Fuji film etc) what one offers the most options. Outside of the standard EF/S mounts. 

My main focus is automotive and landscape if that helps. Obviously I would get multiple if I could. (I may do so in the future), but I can only afford one right now.

Define "best"?

What do you hope to accomplish? Usually, adapters are used because someone wants to use a specific lens, or has access to lenses of another brand. Not because they're shopping in general.

Canon offers fine lenses; what's wrong with them for your needs?

You do understand that any adapter and non-brand lens will be manual, right? No AF, and I'm not even sure about aperture when a lens has no aperture ring. The only combo that supports AF is Canon lenses on Sony E-mount using a Metabones adapter. But that's an exception.

You shoot landscapes and automobiles. Sounds like you need one good wide angle lens. Or, for a crop sensor camera, a super-wide.

So, there's not enough information in your question to provide any advice. What problem are you trying to solve, what are you currently using, what is your budget, and what do you think other lenses will give you that you can't get  with Canon?
