A6600 w/16-55 2.8 or A7 III w/24-70 f/4

I've sent off a bunch of m43 equipment to KEH and unless I've made some kind of wild errors, it will fund, or significantly fund my transition to Sony. (I'm keeping my GH5 and some lenses for backup.)

I'm in a quandary vacillating between the A6600 w/16-55 2.8 and the A7 III w/24-70 f/4. If I go with the A7 III which is about $$600 more than the A6600, I don't feel I can justify (to myself) the additional expense of the Sony FE 24-70mm 2.8.

So here's my question. How do you think the A7 III w/24-70 f/4 and the A6600 w/16-55mm 2.8 balance noise-wise when the A7 III can't get f/2.8 and I have to bump the ISO up another stop?

I hope that makes sense.

The Tamron 28-75mm is not something I can consider as I need the full width of 24mm (EFL). Also, I have looked at some videos directly comparing the Sigma offering to Sony's in that same zoom range and the Sigma is slower at focusing and doesn't do as good a job at real-time tracking.
