Original a7r: an aps-c alternative?

How crazy would it be to buy a used a7r in lieu of upgrading to a6600? I shoot stills, no video, and use prime lenses exclusively. I would lose IBIS, and phase detect af. I would gain second command dial, 36mp full frame sensor, 1/8000 shutter speed... And the original a7r weighs slightly LESS than the a6600.

So imagine the a7r with the Sony Zeiss 35mm f/2.8. Nice tidy package at about 20 oz’s. with 36mp of full frame resolution at 35mm, and (I’m guessing) around 20mp in crop mode for a 50mm equiv focal length. Used in good condition a7r is about $500-$700 depending...

Totally nuts?
