6D or Lens?

Lens is the usual answer but please read on

Daughter has $1000 to spend and has 80D, access to 24-70 f4L IS, 10-22 f3.5-5.6, Nifty 50, Tamron 70-200 f2.8 OS G2

I can't see a lens for $1000 to dramatically help. Seems the 6D might help her situation the most.

She is doing mostly low cost weddings for friends and friends of friends and events for friends at a nominal fee, She also does a few portrait sessions. Her biggest desire seems to be wider standard zoom for group shots. She likes to keep one lens on camera.

I thought the 6D would help in low light and wider FOV with the 24-70 f4

And yea we know the 10-22 won't work on the 6D.

Am I wrong?, opinions welcome.
