Buying a 5Ds(r) now.

Greetings,

I just sold a 5D3 which was a backup to my 5D4. Love the Mark 4 BTW.

Now I'm heavily leaning toward getting a good used 5Ds or 5Dsr to compliment the 5D4. There are times I could use the extra MP. This would be for studio use mostly (strobe).

I know that it's likely that Canon will replace the 5Ds(r) with a Mark 2 this year but I would rather pay 1/2 the price of the Mark 2.

2 questions:

1) To get the "R" version or not. Does moire with fabrics happen often and if so is it easily handled by LR's anti-moire software? Is the R version TOO sharp for people? I suppose in those cases I could go back to the IV. Any other caveats for S or SR?

2) Clients love the ability of the 5D4 to shoot to a tablet via wi-fi for art direction. I see that Canon has the W-E1 SD card wi-fi adapter for $40 designed to achieve the same effect. Does it work?
