Let me give you a different answer.

You said you had problems with high noise when shooting pictures of your children with the Yongnuo 35mm f/2. I assume this is with ambient lighting only or with the built-in flash.

My suggestion is that you buy yourself a good TTL hot-shoe flash and learn to bounce the light off the ceiling or a wall to give you good light on your subjects. One of these hot-shoe flash units will be several times brighter than the 77D's built-in flash.

Using a bounced flash will let you reduce your ISO sufficiently to reduce the noise problem. Increasing the in-camera noise reduction a small amount will give you clean Straight Out Of Camera (SOOC) JPGs, or you can do the noise reduction in post if you preferre.

You should consider the Godox flash units sold by Adorama under their Flashpoint house brand. You get a real warrantee that Adorama honors vs a worthless piece of paper (if you even get that) from the Chinese suppliers on Amazon/eBay.

The Zoom TTL R2 uses four AA batteries while the Zoom Li-Ion R2 TTL uses a LI-Ion battery for more shots from a single charge.

The Zoom-Mini TTL R2 also uses only 2 AA batteries but it is only half as powerful as the other two flash units.

Buying two sets of batteries plus an intelligent charger makes the total cost of the Zoom TTL R2 about the same as buying the Zoom Li-Ion R2 TTL flash.

I recommend the Zoom LI-Ion R2 TTL flash as the best overall buy at $179.
