Experience of Sony with other Primes

Hello everyone, I am aware there have been similar posts, and I have searched in vain, so pardon any duplications here. I am a hobbyist focusing on portraits of my kid and landscapes, looking to buy an A7 or A7ii body, over the Xt2, as it's currently cheaper (A7) or roughly the same, price (A7ii). Unfortunately, the price of several Full Frame Sony lens are more than I can spend. I read the article below, where the author used old Minolta lenses, and was intrigued.

Any experience using yesteryears lenses and primes ? Would I need IBIS (A7ii) or could the A7 suffice? I understand to get the AF I would need metabones adapters, which add bulk and weight.

Your experience and guidance are deeply appreciated.
