Better for Low Light: 7d with L glass or 6d with cheaper glass?

I would get 6D with say 35mm f/2 and 85mm f/1,8.
if budget permits, maybe get a used 5D mark II....

For 7D mark II, then it would be another different scenario....  :p


Canon 7D Mark II | BG-E16 | Canon EF-S 10-18mm | Sigma DC 18-35mm ART | Canon EF 70-200mm f/2,8L IS II
Canon Speedlite 430EX III-RT |
Olympus E-PL3 | M.Zuiko ED 7-14mm PRO

I owned the original 7D and 5D2 at the same time. On paper, the 5D2 should have 1/2 stop less read noise when cropped to 1.6x, and 1.16 stops less using the entire frame at the same high ISO, but the 5D2 really did not do much better at high ISOs, because it had pre-gain horizontal banding noise that became visible at high ISO exposure indices, regardless of ISO setting, and it had post-gain banding, too. The 7D only had post-gain vertical banding that could potentially be clearly visible, but being post-gain, it could be avoided with ETTR, or even a couple of stops of under-exposure at high ISOs. The 5D2 shone in high-key exposures at low and mid ISOs and needed ETTR more.

Although it seemed to be at the time of its release, I would never consider the 5D2 as a camera for high ISOs these days. The 6D is a much better camera at high ISOs, with relatively low banding noise, going at low prices these days.
