6d + 80d or 6d Mark II ?

For mixed use 50/50 Photo/Video. Would you guys chose a 6D + 80D or 6D Mark II ?

I already have a 6D and love it for photos, but want something for video. I kept the 6d and had a 4k m43 Panasonic G7 setup for a while and got good results, however I didnt like having two systems and sold the m43 stuff.

What direction might you guys lean? With the 6Dii, I get everything in one simple package, am stuck with heavy FF glass, and only need to worry about one body. With the 6D+80d, I get a spare body, the ability to use APS-C lenses, but the added hassle of likely only bringing one body to small trips.

Both options are roughly the same price out of pocket to me.
