Before I sold my 7d2 to go full frame, my decision was between the 5d4 and the R. Even though I love the R sometimes I still wonder... but glad to read stuff like this
If I hadn't been using the Fuji X100F and enjoying the mirrorless benefits for the past few months, I wouldn't have even considered the R. Complete convert now, and while the R isn't perfect, the amount of vitriol it has received from the reviewers is unfounded. This thing performs.
I was close to parting with the 80D as well, but it's an awesome, light weight body for birding when the light is good. I use it basically as a 1.6 "extender" w/ the 600, and when I take the dog walking it goes on the 100-400 II. That, and my New Years resolution is to not buy/sell/trade any gear. The 5D4 I put up just in time on the 31st, so it doesn't violate the resolution
