Help me choose A7R or A7S


I'm looking at jumping on the fullframe Nex wagon. I'm an amateur who shoots a little of everything (not concerts/bar scenes). I find video to cumbersome so I only use that a family events. My wife just got a horse so that might get higher up the priority list. (indoor low light).

I currently have A99/RX1/Nex7 and a lot of high quality lenses (Zeiss and G) as well as 50/58/85mm F1.2 manuel lenses.

I'm trying to choose between A7R and A7S (have good deals, so A7S is $300 more that A7R). I'm planning on using it when A99 is too bulky and RX1 fixed focal length is too limited

Arguments for A7R

* Higher resolution / Better dynamic range / Better IQ ??

Arguments for A7S

* Better ISO handling (A7R is pretty good, so how much that means in real life is hard to say)

* Better AF in low light, silent shutter (less shake)

* Better support for Leica and other wide angle lenses (of which I have none)

I have a feeling that the differences is small for my usage (never print anyting larger that 2 feet)
