Adapting Nikon F (G) to Canon EF - New Lens Recommendation for Street Photographer

Hello,

I am a street photographer and I really want a new 28mm lens as this wide perspective is commensurate with my shooting habits and preferred focal length. I shoot with the EF system (70d).

I looking through the lens's of this focal length

https://www.dxomark.com/Lenses/Compare/Side-by-side/Canon-EF-28mm-F28-IS-USM-on-Canon-EOS-5DS-R-versus-Canon-EF-24mm-F28-IS-USM-on-Canon-EOS-5DS-R-versus-Canon-EF-35mm-F2-IS-USM-on-Canon-EOS-5DS-R__887_1009_888_1009_1086_1009

at roughly my price limit. The 28mm is what I need but the 35mm is clearly better and not that much more expensive. However I had a thought, what about going for a Nikon lens and then using an adapter?

I could go for the 35mm f2 but I do need a 28mm, however the Canon 28mm 2.8 USM and also the 24mm of the same range isn't really doing it for me.

This is the lens I would use, the Nikon 28mm 1.8G, which I have found cheaper elsewhere and this is the closest DXO mark analysis I could find, which isn't the same lens but is on two different systems and I don't know whether the cameras are comparable.

So my question is, are there any recommendations for 28mm Canon fittable lenses? Do you think that the 28mm G is comparable to the Canon 28mm 2.8 or 35mm f2? And do you think its worth adapting these Nikon lenses?

Thanks for readingĀ
