That bigger sensor might give you a stop. Not that much. And you've been using pretty slow lenses. A faster lens might improve things more than the sensor. And IBIS. And using the tripod. And good denoise software. And stacking. It's sort of a complete package if you want noticeable improvement; the body alone won't be a miracle cure.

No offense intended, but that's just nonsense, and bad advice as such.

Look at this photonstophotos comparison : it is more like three to four stops of light, which is a huge difference. A faster lens will hardly make as much of a difference.
