Justifying cost of Sony for a newbee?

Hi,

I'm purchasing a new camera .  I really love the Sony small form and all the features, but to get honest with my budget i want to spend under 5k all in.  I can get a used Nikon d750 , 6dii, or matk iii for around $1500.  A wide, telephoto and prime for $2500, L quality and have $1000 for tripod, battery , light etc.

For the Sony Its about 4k for the lens, 16-35 f4 1k, 24-70 2,8 2k and 55 prime 1k and the body is about a $1500 preimum, used a7r2 about $2500,  tripod battery ect same 1k

So $7500 all in with Sony and 5 k with other systems,  the only way to make this work is to get a old Sony body and sacrifice all the fun features that drew me to it .   I"m torn on how to jump in I will be using it for Viedo and Photos 70% photos.

Any thought or input on how I should approach jumping in.  Thanks in advance

Patrick
