I was thinking about getting the 50mm f1.8. I think my Sigma 30mm f1.4 will be good in the low light too.

Excellent thinking.

Your T6i is not dated at all -- in fact, it is more up-to-date than the (original) 7D in many technical aspects.

Late last year, I bought a T6s (virtually identical to T6i) for my daughter. I sometimes take it with me on my afternoon photo walks and am pleased with its performance, which, in many cases, is comparable to my 80D.

I was about to recommend that you pay attention to and spend money on "faster" lenses instead of upgrading to 80D. I am glad to see your latest statement above.

Eventually, should you consider a telephoto lens, the relatively affordable EF 85mm f/1.8 and EF 100mm f/2 would be very good considerations. (I use both and prefer the latter.)
