some confusion on lenses other than M43

I’m a little confused as to the best option for using lenses via an adapter. I just purchased a used EM1 at a good price and would like to buy some decent fast zooms but I have a limited budget. I would love the 12-40 or the even the Panny 12-35 but the price on these (new or used) is crazy!

So I was looking at cheaper alternatives via the used market like the 14-54 ii with the Olympus adapter but I now I realize that there are adapters for almost any brands out there (Canon, Nikon, Pentax etc….) which means that the pool of used lenses opens up significantly.

Any advantages with sticking with Olympus classic 4/3 lenses or should I consider the other brands?

Thanking  you in advance.

Olympus E-M1
