New system for a small photo business - a7rii or a cheaper one like a6300?

Hi guys,

So I started this thread here:

Long story short, I plan on gradually going into a photography as a side business and maybe full time someday.

I sold all my gear and am in the market for a new one.

I am considering the E mount with the a6300 or a7x (I really don't know which a7x would be better as there are so many) and the A mount with the excellent a99.

What would you recommend? Camera plus lens for a startup. I know a bit about the good lenses on Canon, but am clueless in regards to what goes on Sony.

I'd like to shoot primarily commercial photography (product, maybe low cost fashion, interiors, restaurant menus, etc) BUT I'd take whatever jobs I can get in the beginning, so I'll be shooting events like small weddings and what not.

I've been reading a lot of forums, but I really would like to hear your take on this, real advise from people who actually does photo for a living.

Also, 4k shooting would be a great addition, as many customers are asking for high quality video nowadays.

Many thanks in advance.
