besides these upgrades, would the a7 be a great way to get into FF on a budget? The A7II would be a nice camera to have for its upgraded features but it doesn't matter much to me if the regular A7 is usable.

A7 for FF on a budget? Of course, it is the most inexpensive among Sony FE series. That camera got me from APSC to FF world, I stumbled to a fantastic deal locally.

A7 is a very capable camera, as long as you know how to work with its limits and maximize strengths.

Yeah I plan on using it mainly for street photography and nothing professional or selling prints.

Couldn't help to notice your gear list but how is the 28mm f2 lens in terms of IQ and overall ergonomics? Plan on getting that instead of the 35 2.8 because of cost factor and I can always crop an image but from the looks, the 35mm is a lot compact and smaller compared to 28mm.
