Next Lens advise

Hi there

Long time lurker ; new time poster

Looking for opinions on what lens to get to expand myself next in my photography. Big fan of travel shots, landscapes and general photography

I like primes and I like manual focus but looking to improve my glass

Would love anyones thoughts. I want to go wider but limited if I stay with full frame 35mm glass.

Thoughts? Expand the focal range, or go for better glass / faster glass? Or go EF / EF-S

Current Camera = Canon 30D (Crop body) -  also use these on an old Zenith occasionally hence the m42 glass

Lenses I use

18-28mm Samyang f/4-4.5 (M42)

24-85mm Canon f/3.5-4.5 USM (EOS EF)

50mm Canon f/1.8 nifty-fifty (EOS EF)

135mm Helios f/2.8 (M42)  ------ recently replaced my old Hanimex f/2.8

200mm Canon FD f/2.8 (with FD to EOS adapter)

Effective 370mm (200mm on 1.85 teleconv) Photax-Paragon f/3.5 (really at f4 with the conv) POS glass but gets me the reach (M42)

Kit lenses (I never really use except at family events for auto and passing camera around)

28-80mm f/3.5-5.6 II Canon (EOS EF)

18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS Canon (EOS EF-S)

Canon EOS 30D
