Lens buying strategy?
1

What do y'all thing of the strategy for future lens purchases, below?

I current have the following gear:  80D upon which I usually keep the Sigma 150-600 mounted; 6D mark II upon which I usually have my 70-300 mounted; 5DS upon which I usually keep a 24-105 mounted.

Down the road, maybe sooner or maybe later, I will add a mirrorless, perhaps the R6. With that purchase, I would also include the EF-R adapter.

My thought for purchasing any additional lenses would be to purchase EF mount lenses, thereby allowing their use on my existing bodies and the "future" mirrorless body. In addition, any lenses after purchase of mirrorless would be EF mount, unless the lens would be "special use" to take advantage of particular feature of the mirrorless body (e.g. the RF-600, etc).

Opinions regarding this strategy? Thanks.
