Thinking of selling everything to get the a6600 + 16-55 2.8

Hey guys,

I've got the a6500 with a bunch of lenses (Sigma 16mm 1.4, 18-35mm 1.8, 56mm 1.4, Tamron 28-75mm 2.8, Sony 10-18mm 4) but I've found that I only really ever use the 10-18mm for walking around, the 56mm for portraits and the 28-75 for car shows.

I wish I could use it out more but my girlfriend prefers the front facing cam on her xiaomi A1 (terrible camera) purely due to it being a 'selfie cam'. I brought up the idea of replacing most of my gear with the a6600 with 2 main lenses being the 16-55 2.8 for general walk about and the 10-18mm because it's an extremely invaluable focal length and she almost lost her mind because of the flip up screen.

But my main concern is whether the a6600 is even that good? For my purposes it seems to tick all the boxes as well as keep the gf enthused (without the flip up screen she wouldn't care at all) but seem to have a hard time coming to terms with selling all these pretty dang sharp lenses (excluding the 10-18mm).

I'd have to sell the a6500, the sigma 18-35mm + MC11 adapter, sigma 16mm and the tamron 28-75 to cover the cost of the a6600 + 16-55mm 2.8 which seems like I'm losing out.

Anyone out there in a similar situation?
