Legacy lens question

Hi All,

Am currently in between deciding which FF camera system I should be investing into (Canon vs Nikon). I have been reading a lot in both the forums and am still undecided. However, I was trying to investigate today what legacy lenses can be used in either of the systems, hence this post today.

I own the following legacy lenses and have been using them with my m43 system successfully. I have gone through a lot of posts but then the subject is not very clearly addressed. Will appreciate if I could be shown the right direction if I can use any of these on a Canon 6D or Canon 5D mark III?

If not, what legacy lens mounts are recommended especially for WA, portrait and other comparable focal lengths?

- Panagor PMC Auto Macro 90mm f/2.8 Lens Minolta MD Mount

- Olympus OM-System Zuiko 35-70 f/3.5-4.5 Zoom Lens

- Konica Hexanon AR 135mm F3.2

- Minolta MD ROKKOR X 50mm F1.7

- Pentax Super Takumar 35mm 3.5 with case M42 screw mount and Pentax Super Takumar 55mm 1.8 M42

My current understanding is that it is easier to adapt the lenses using an adapter on Canon vs Nikon.

P.S: You might see the exact query in Nikon forum.
