But is that overkill for these old lenses? Would I be better off with an A7ii at 24 Mpx and IBIS?

Thoughts?

The A7RII isn't overkill, if the lenses are good. It also has IBIS.

I can't think of any advantage the A7II would have, apart from smaller file sizes, saving hard disk space.

I used to have an A7ii and upgraded to an A7Rii about a year ago.

The A7Rii has better low light performance (high ISO files have less noise) and the silent shutter can be useful. Obviously, the files have higher resolution, which is nice, but the downside is that it seems to make it less forgiving of poor technique, or maybe that's just me!

The biggest downside of the A7Rii is the magnified view when manual focusing. It is much less clear when the subject is perfectly focused. The A7ii is superior in that respect but not as good in almost every other area.
