Was thinking of selling/swapping my a99 II for a7R II

Some of the old Minolta lenses are spectacular.

In fact, I would not replace them with anything newer. Maybe you're operating in the margins with the ones that you have. To truly appreciate the 99II, put some equivalent glass on. Try any of the Zeiss lenses or anything from the Sigma art line. Until you see what those lenses do, you're not doing the body justice. I am in the school of a modest body with excellent lenses rather than a great body with mediocre lenses. I love the Minolta 80-200G f/2.8 and the Minolta 85mm f/1.4 and would use nothing else in place of them. Pick up a Sony/Zeiss 28-70 f/2.8 or the Sigma 35mm f/1.4 and you'll see how the 99II really performs

I'm not a pixel peeper. I just shoot images. Resolution is the most overrated facet of photography.
