Is there somewhere info to be found to figure out which camera is most light sensitive? I am thinking of buying a secondhand 5D/5Dii of 6D to use indoors with a 50mm prime. For other situations my 77D is more than enough for my use.

Of those you listed, the 6D, definitely. The newer ones do not offer any/much low light improvements.

Yup. The FF definitely beat the 80D but they're pretty similar to each other:

It comes down in real world to what optics you are using.

He said a 50mm prime, so that pretty much settles it. Hard to get the same light with crop unless he meant the old 50/2.5 macro.

If you don't get the bigger lens with the larger entrance pupil with shallower DOF, for the same angle of view, the larger-sensor camera does not deliver, noise-wise, above base ISO.

It just so happens that DPReview "accidentally" tested the 5D4 at ISO 32000, which it usually doesn't do, but this is convenient for comparing in "equivalence" of angle of view, DOF, photon noise, and diffraction, which you would get with the same entrance pupil size and similar pricing in a lens. When you compare the 7D2 to the 5D4 that way (12800 vs 32000), noise is about the same in daylight mode, and the 7D2 is slightly cleaner in incandescent mode.

This is an interesting academic example but where people normally shoot, the 5D4 is 1 stop+ better than the 7D2 at the same ISO.
