Canon EOS 5D Mark IV or may be called as the 5D X is very tempting because it can create a 4K video, while the 80D "just" Full-HD video. To feature 4K video, then certainly you will pay higher than Full-HD version. In my opinion, the resolution of Full-HD video is more than enough to watch videos on an HDTV screen. YouTube enthusiast will also be very happy if you upload your YouTube videos, especially the screen on a laptop or smartphones in general are Full-HD display. It might be wise if you save your money to collect additional lenses, whether genuine Canon lens, or a third-party lens made by Tamron, Sigma, Tokina or Samyang.
If you are not yet ready for a full-frame camera, you can also consider the Canon EOS 750D or Rebel SL2 (Canon 150D), which is certainly cheaper than a full-frame camera. The EOS 150D is also an interesting choice because it has a body smaller and lighter, so it is a comfortable companion for holidays around the world, and ready to meet the needs of your everyday photography.
