D7200 to A7Rii

I am considering dumping my 2 D7200s for an A7ii and A7Rii. From a landscape perspective, is there a $1K improvement between the D7200 and the A7RII?

I wasn't a fan of the D750 size. Especially not with th Sigma 12-24.

I want better low light ISO performance. I don't feel so comfortable shooting above about 1600 on my Nikon's. If there are some good bright spots, I'll go to 2500. 3200 feels about 50/50.

I just looked at my last 100K images captured. 66% are below 50mm on ASPC...75mm equivalent (I'm sure someone is going to police that word. I'm interested in a conversation about effective and using a simple translation factor for easy conversation.). Only 15% are above 100.

I mostly shoot landscape...like 90%. But, I have an eye to the future with want zoomed when it is eventually safe to travel to Africa on a Safari.

I would be happy with an A6300, except the grip. The first ASPC sony that feels good is the 6600...which costs more than either FF bodies I am looking at.

The initial lenses would be the Tamron 28-200 (wife), 17-28 and 28-75. This is subject to change with the 30 September Sigma announcement.

I currently love my sigma 18-35. I equate the Tamron 28-75 to have the same DOF and light gathering, but an extra stop due to ISO as well as stabilization advantages.

I am very likely to also add either the Laowa 10-18 or 12mm. I am a giant fan of 122° FOV. Sure, you can foot zoom. But I go enough places where I cannot (Plitvice).

The weight savings is less than a pound between the two setups

I am assuming 2 stops of light gain wide open at the UWA.  No light gain in normal zoom, but a stabilization gain.  1 stopped ISO across the range (found a chart that the D7200 has dynamic range of 10 at ISO 2200, the Sony's at 5000.). Extra pixels only interest me for more cropping.
