Convince me to stay with Canon

It's not a troll thread.  I don't do trolling, check my posts.

But I am seriously doubting what to do about my next body.  I am happy to stay with my 6D for a while but I was going to get a 135/2 or 85/1.4, and a 35/2 or 35/1.4 ii, and now I've cancelled all that and I'm wondering whether to switch to a Sony a7riii. ( I was all set to get a 6dii a few months ago, but despite the other improvements I think the sensor does not warrant a price of 2k or even 1.5k today).

Pluses for Sony: that amazing EyeAF, more mpix, more DR, lower system weight (depending on lenses too)

Pluses for 5DMkIV: no adapter, no cost for changing lenses, possibly cheaper as a system despite the camera being expensive, ergonomics that I like

My current lenses: Canon 16-35 f4, Canon 24-105 I F4, Canon 70-200 F4 L IS, Canon 100 2.8 macro, Sigma 50 DG EX ( I HATE the Sigma AF!), Samyang 14 mm 2.8

To be clear: my skill limits me more than the camera. But that doesn't mean a better camera couldn't make it easier to get good photos, or increase my keeper rate.  And anyway my girlfriend can inherit my 6D.

Many years ago I told myself I would not get another Sony product, but I have to respect what they're doing now with cameras, they certainly drive innovation and competition.
