    I'd look at a different option than the 17-40 with the 6d

    The 17-40 gives a fov of 17-40 on the 6d, the 18-35 gives a fov of 28-56 on the 89d

    My friend is very happy with 6D and Sigma 24mm f/1.4 as a walkaround lens. Sorry for Shutterstok link.

    I'll try to rephrase it to make myself clear. I'm sure getting just Sigma 18-35 1.8 will benefit me. What I'm wondering is whether investing another 800-1000$ to get either 80D or go 6D with a lens around 800$ (to match the price of 80D and Sigma) would provide another big/considerable improvement in IQ.

    Yes, if you know what to do with a result. If you happy with 28-56mm on aps-c and don't want to invest your time into learning post processing, buying a Sigma is way, imho.

    Before considering either I think you might want to consider the advantages and disadvantages of full-frame vs. crop sensors. You can get nice bodies in either, but you need to compare something closer to apples:apples. E.g.: In Canon a 7D or 7D Mk. II vs. a 6D.

    Then you can start thinking about where you want to go with lenses.

    At least that's the way I'd approach the question. ICBW.

    I appreciate all your replies.

    Let me ask you this. What would be the advantages/disadvantages of each setup (price is the same, $1800)?
    Canon 6D + 17-40 L4 & 50mm 1.8 vs Canon 80D + Sigma 18-35 F1.8 & 50mm 1.8

    After researching a bit more and finding how much trouble people have to go through with Sigma 18-35 on Canon bodies, especially 80D, I decided against it.

    Right now I can get Canon 6D + 17-40 L4 for $1650 both brand new or Canon 80D + Sigma 17-55 2.8 for $1450 both brand new. Almost the same weight, almost the same price.

    If I were to take a photo like this:

    Which set up would be more suitable? I don't plan on getting more lenses anytime soon (I have my 50mm 1.8) so FF vs Crop in this sense doesn't really matter that much.
