I am so ready to leave Canon for Nikon but ...

It's really hard for me to let go of my Canon TSE-24mm. It's my favorite lens.  It's the one I can always count on to offer me the sharpness and composition I am looking for. I love to shift and create amazing panorama.  I currently own a Canon 5DS R which I use less and less over the years since I got the my Fuji as a 2nd body. I love working with EVFs. It has change the way I operate and It doesn't break my back anymore. The reason I want to get out of Canon is because their sensor has been falling behind the competition for many years now. I've shot a few time with Sony exmor sensor and I thought the quality so much better than my Canon.

I've been looking at the Nikon Z7 as a replacement.  It's mostly for stills. I am unfamiliar with Nikon lens line-up but I think it's time for me to switch over.  I was going to get the 24-70mm Kit lens for start. I will be looking for a a wide angle lens, a 50mm 1.4 and a 70-200mm  in a near future as I offload my Canon lenses.

BTW, I did consider the EOS R as a replacement but I think I am more excited about trying something new after 15 years of shooting Canon.  Plus I don't think the EOS R sensor is in the same league as the Nikon Z7.

If you have any lens suggestion for me, feel free to chime in.
