6D is my vote. You will see HUGE dif in IQ.

I would replace the 28mm with 85 f1.8 for portrait - candid shots

 what do you shoot?   if it is fast motion  moving objects,  the t2i, 6d  and mkii  will all suffer to capture that.   I'd point you to a 7d  for that.

 if it is  landscapes... I might point you to the mkii,

 if it is really low light, 6d.

Mostly portraits.
I shoot a 4 year old running around I find the t2i to capture it perfectly.

Go full-frame. You can add lenses later.

Sounds strange, because most would advise going for lenses first, but the IQ difference is worth it. You will not be likely to go back to crop.

 I'm good light, I  contend that the full frame benefits are not as consequential.  I have zero complaints about my 5dmkiii,  but if I was told tomorrow that I had to go back to a 70d, I  wouldn't be heart broken beyond belief.   get the right exposure with good lenses and crop isn't a four letter word....  well,  you know.

You have a decent set of lenses, but you would clearly benefit from upgrading your body. The 5DII was a great camera when it came out, but it is a bit seasoned now. The 6D is doing most things (that matters) better than the 5DII, so it is a better choice IMO. And, regardless of what some crop fans may say, full frame is a big improvement over crop.

This is a Hobby for me - Thanks for the responses. I'll save up a little more for a used 6d.

Looks like you don't really need a camera upgrade, after all.
