Sell or keep EOS R after getting the R5

I am curious if most people will keep or sell their EOS R after upgrading to the R5.

I am only a hobbyist, and I've only ever kept 1 body at a time.  I've always sold my previous body to help finance the new body, but I am torn with the EOS R.  I have a feeling that the resale value will be quite low once the R5 comes out and people start selling their R's.

Maybe it makes more sense to keep it as a spare/backup.  It would also be nice to bring the R and R5 out together and use 2 lenses without changing.  I could put the RF 50 or 85 on the R5 with the IBIS, and keep the RF 35IS of 15-35IS on the R.  This combination has me pretty excited!

The biggest problem may be explaining to my wife why I am not selling the R and how I now need 2 cameras...but I digress. 

What are others going to do?
