Good choice. (But not a big jump relative to T6i.)

and look for a telephoto either Canon 70-300mm USM or Canon 70-200mmmf4L .

You already have an excellent, sharp zoom: EF-S 55-250mm f/4-5.6 IS STM. As long as you have the 80D (or, currently, the T6i), this lens will serve you well.

If you consider the EF 70-200, save up for the real thing: 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM. Why settle for less if your primary concern is "low light"?

I think the Canon 18-135mm is a pretty decent lens

It's more than "pretty decent." I shoot with it at 135mm wide open (f/5.6) all the time and get sharp images with nice color and contrast.

(You could get a "white box / kit split" copy of this lens and use it with the T6i.)
