Free to explore other mounts (camera systems: Panasonic & Fuji vs Canon)

Since Canon decided to EOL the EF mount, this opened the door for me to part ways with Canon when my 5D.m4  eventually breaks.  The question is, which system would best to consider?  Panasonic S1r, Fuji GFX 50s, or stay with Canon R5?

My existing Sigma lenses can be converted to L-mount, this means I can make these lenses native to Panasonic.

The Canon & Fuji I would need to adapt (not ideal).

I have tried a Canon R (firmware 1.0) with my lenses and it worked fine with the EF-RF adapter, but I absolutely hated the Canon R camera body.  Very poor mirrorless implementation in comparison to my Olympus, largely with EVF execution.  I have no complaints with my 5D and Olympus systems.

The Fuji appeal is the sensor size. Panasonic appeal because I can natively convert my lenses (cheapest investment).  Canon would be just as costly as Fuji (being full replacement) but in a smaller sensor.

Any feedback on these systems from owners?

Primary purpose of this system is low-light photography, my m4/3 Olympus handles everything else.
