A7R or A7ii (for my requirements)

hi all

i know there are plenty of A7 vs threads, but after going through loads of them I still feel the need to ask about certain queries. Simply because I've never owned a sony nor a FF sensor camera.

My current cameras are an old Eos Rebel, and an om-d m5 mk2 but I only use the latter since it outperforms the eos in almost everything

with a 2k budget I can go for a7r, a7ii or a7s, but since i wont be shooting videos, i left a7s aside.

my most shooting situation is in low light without tripod (street photography, casual events, festivals etc). I dont need features like tracking focus and endless focus points.

so with that in mind i was going for the a7r since it has better iso and higher res?

question is, what does it exactly boil down to when choosing between these 2 models? unfortunately i dont have access to any of these neither as rental, so i cant really talk about 'feel'.

*edit* forgot to ask about the autofocus issue. i read somewhere that one of these models had more issues than the rest? anyone knows about it?
