Going full frame would be a solution if the damn cameras weren't so expensive

Not really, assuming you are OK with buying used? There are several outstanding FF cameras you can buy for only a little more $$ than the lenses you are considering. FF is no longer just for the wealthy!

That's the problem. I don't feel like buying old cameras. Of course it would get the job done, but... this must be a negative side effect of being an IT guy. I just can't be happy with 5 years or so old technology.

The 6d mkII could be viable purchase, but the few times I checked some reviews, I got the impression it wasn't particularly good camera.

I totally understand that philosophy, but luckily cameras age better than computers and smartphones. And the higher end cameras do even better.

Case in point: Ya know that fancy Sony A7R4 that was just announced? 60MP!!! Wooo! Well...it still hasn't caught up to the image quality this camera from 2011 can produce under certain conditions.
