Canon 5d Mark 2 and Canon 70d

I bought the Canon 70d, mainly for video, with the idea of possibly getting a FF if I started taking more stills. I really like the 70d and as I prefer prime lenses was thinking of getting a Sigma 30mm to have the equivalent of 50mm. However there is a 5d mark 2 for sale secondhand which is not that much more than the 30mm lens. So my question is would it be better to buy the 5d and then I could use my Sigma 50mm lens? In effect meaning I would have a FF camera instead of another lens.

I never take more than one lens with me when I take photographs and I also have an 85mm lens.
