A7 has a "less pleasing" noise pattern, arguably more noise. And it doesn't have uncompressed RAW, which leads to color shift in the shadows when pushing.

Which only means A6300 has more NR built-in that you can apply in software.  You cannot separate details from noise such as in DPR lab test.

As compressed RAW, you will only see this issue in bright edges after aggressively pushing up shadows in evening photos especially.  Otherwise it's not a big deal.  I still own A7r which also only supports compressed RAW and don't find it's a big deal.

Nevertheless I am glad you could justify A7r II that is in a different league.
