Decided to enlarge my gear with D500

After many days of debating on buying Sony A9 with 3 lenses (20/55/85 F1.8) and selling A6600 with my set of lenses I came to conclusion that the best way to go for me is to have two bodies and two systems. I am ditching the idea of FF, as it is not necessary for my style. Moreover, having two bodies is beneficial when I do not have to juggle the lenses during fast pace of action around me.

I will keep my Sigmas 18-35/1.8 & 56/1.4 with A6600 and I want to purchase D500 with Tokina 11-20/2.8 and Nikkor 70-200/2.8 VRII, which seems a bit old but still kicking with D500 in terms of AFC. Within a bit smaller budget I get what I wanted, that is a sharp and fast UWA lens without any adaptors slowing down FPS bursts in A6600 and great sports longer lens. A6600 seems to have better video capabilities than A9 and, and it still counts in my work. Great burts of FPS in D500 also are essential, as A6600 lags behind in this regard.

So, If anyone knows the reason why such gear should not be purchased, say now or be silent forever.
