It'd be fun to screw my EF 24-85 on to something like Nikon Z9 or Sony A7R IV, of course. I woulda won points for the oddest lens/camera combo ever.
Just take it slowly. I do. Basically I replaced my ageing 5D II with an EOS R plus a few adapters, and an RF 25-105L to start with. I was impressed, and sold my EF 50 F/1.2L plus a few other lenses I never used anymore, and replaced that with an RF 50L Next an RF 85L when I realised how capable the EOS R was with AF etc., and again sold a few lenses plus the old EF 85L II. Basically, the RF 50L and 85L didn't cost me anything, I ended up with a little extra money in the pocket. And since I sold the 5D II well before the EOS R arrived, I actually got some decent money for that too. All in all I spent relatively little so far.
Currently saving for an R5, but by the time i have the budget available, there may be an R5 II already .
Gear: Canon EOS R with 3 primes and 2 zooms, 4 EF-R adapters, Canon EOS 5 (analog), 9 Canon EF primes, a lone Canon EF zoom, 2 extenders, 2 converters, tubes; Olympus OM-D 1 Mk II & Pen F with 12 primes, 6 zooms, and 3 Metabones EF-MFT adapters ....
