Canon 6D with New Lens or New Panasonic GH5 with Existing Lenses? Which should I buy?

I have a Canon 6D and several lenses. My lenses are as follows:

1. Sigma 70-200mm non-OS

2. Canon 24-105mm f4.5-5.6

3. Canon 50mm f1.4

I have never really achieved very sharp results with the Sigma at any aperture, using auto or manual focus. I bought it used and it was the first lens I bought, so I don't really know if it is performing as it should. I am quite happy with the Canon 24-105mm lens. It seems to give good results. I haven't used the Canon 50mm that much but I think it's working fine.

I mainly use the camera for video. I am currently working on a documentary but am not really satisfied with the results so I want to upgrade my equipment. My budget is in the region of £1500.

My first instinct was to get something like a Panasonic GH5 and an adaptor to connect my existing Canon lenses. I already have a GPU that can support 4K video and I have a 4K monitor, so I think I'm good-to-go. I could possibly also get a kit lens with the GH5. But last night I thought that perhaps I would be better off sticking with my Canon 6D and spending the money on a better lens. I don't know what lens yet though.

So I was hoping that one of you guys could advise me on this matter?
