Hi, I should first apologize for being all over the place. Now here is my delimma. I purchased my A7ii in May, after the A7Rii was released I desperately wanted one and sold my A7ii two weeks ago. However, when it came time to justify spending that much on a camera for purely passion and not professional work, I just could not justify it. Since I get paid for shooting sports, I invested in a Canon 7Dii for that specific purpose (unfortunately my Sony was not completely reliable for sports...yet). For everything else I refuse to shoot with anything but Sony. I have decided to wait a year or so until the A7Rii drops/rebates to $2500ish to make the purchase. In the meantime I want a camera that is good for strictly still photography. Since I just spent some cash on 7Dii for sports, I do not want to splurge on the A7ii once again only to sell it in 1yr (fingers crossed). For still photography, will purchasing the A7 give me the same result as the A7ii? I realize the IBIS helps with stability and lowering shutter speed for more light. But I have a flash now and have grown as a photographer to the point where my hands barely shake. Am I right in my logic in terms of down the road thinking? Will getting the A7 for strictly stills give me the same result as the M2? Would love to hear some experienced perspective as I am new to photography and quickly growing... Resulting in jumping the gun & gear whore syndrome. Thanks.
