6d with 24-105mm or 28mm + 85mm 1.8


Next week I'm planning to upgrade my old 40d to 6d.

I own a Canon 28 1.8f lens which is superb and I use it most of the time.

Additionally I have an EF-S 50-250mm which won't work with 6d... I'm using it to do shots of my kids running in the garden.

I take a lot of indoor pictures (kids@home) with my 28mm sometimes with the flash speedlite 580ex ii and the results are great.

The question is is it better to get 6D Body + 85mm 1.8f lens and use it together with the 28mm lens or take the 24-105 + 6d kit.The price will be identical around 1400£.

Will the 24-105 4f lens perform good on a FF body - deep of field, sharpness..?

24-105 seems to be a really good option for any kind of outdoor activities and holidays

PS> And I'm not considering Tamron 24-70 2.8f as its too expensive and my wife would kill me.
