Help me decide! 6D + 50mm f1.8 STM or 100D + 35mm f2 IS USM

Dear all, I'm a current Canon shooter who owns a 550D and kit lens. I've finally saved up enough to get one of the options stated above second hand for about the same price. I'll mostly be taken family portraits.

In terms of weight, both sets will come in at approximately 900g, so weight will not be a factor.

On the 100D, the 35mm will come up to slightly more than 50mm FOV, so this aspect will be similar too.

Obviously, the 6D has a better sensor and will give me better low ISO performance. But the 35mm f2 IS is supposedly the more superior lens and it's IS may give sharper photos.

Please help me to make a more informed decision which I'll commit to in the next couple of days.

Thank you!

Canon EOS 550D (EOS Rebel T2i / EOS Kiss X4) Canon EOS 6D Canon EOS Rebel SL1 (EOS 100D)
