Own 80d. Should I buy a 5d or 6d?

I own a Canon 80d, and I love it.

I am interested in getting a "full frame project camera" for some full frame lenses that I plan on getting soon and I know that ff lenses perform better on ff cameras than aps-c cameras. I know I wont be using the full frame camera as much as my 80d because I need the 1.6 reach.

If I had a small budget should I buy the 5d classic mark i or the 6d mark i?

I am interested in getting the full frame for portrait work (not professionally) and didnt know what would be better? I have my pros and cons for each camera, let me know if I missed something important or have advice for me!

5d classic pros:


-Apparently alot of people say the 5d classic has a certain look that was lost in newer 5d models, Jamie Windsorlikes the 5d classic. I want that look!

6d pros:

- Newer, more features, and better resolution.

- better high iso than 5d classic, and possible better than my 80d ( I dont know?)

5d classic cons:

- worse high iso? How much differnece would my 80d be to the 5d classic? does the newer camera beat the older full frame?

- 12 megapixels dont bother me. not a con.

6d cons:

-more expensive

-might not have same look as the 5d classic?


I need your help... Should go for better high iso over 5d classic legendary image quality or do I get the 5d classic and not go too high on the iso?

Please let me know what you think? thanks!
