Upgrading gear - newbie question

Hi all!

If you all don't mind I'll abuse once more your wisdom to ask a general question: I have an Instagram profile and that's the only media where my pictures are published.

I'm thinking about upgrading my camera/lens to something semi professional (Sony a7iii / Sigma 85mm 1.4). The shop owner told me that basically it's useless to do so because on IG a better camera/lens compared with mine (a simpler Pana gx80 with Oly 45mm f1.8) makes close to 0 difference due to how the pictures are compressed and the size.

Has any of you upgraded to a serious body/lens for IG purposes only? Do you see the difference or ultimately the shop owner was right?

Thank you all

Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX85
