Default Lens database sites?

I have recently found that Dyxum.com is a great site for researching Sony mount lenses, but I have not been able to find a site where I can search a list of all lenses available for other camera systems?

Is there a site like this for Nikon and Canon? It would be super helpful and make things much easier, as it is now I have no idea if the lenses I would want are even made for Canon or Nikon.

So what I am searching for is a database of lenses available in Canon or Nikon mounts, like Dyxum has a list for Sony mount.

Thanks!

There are also http://www.photozone.de and http://www.lenstip.com.

http://www.popphoto.com and http://www.cameralabs.com also test lenses but their results are more subjective than objective.

In a pinch, there's even http://www.photodo.com.

A good place to go to find a list of possible lens choices for your camera is http://dpanswers.com/roztr/lens_finder.php While there are brief reviews of some of the lenses, the main attraction is simply showing what your options are.
