Has any portrait photogs swapped out their A73 in favor of an A7R3? I've seen those who have went for the A73 in favor of the smaller files sizes,buy not many who've gone the other way.

My reasoning for considering the swap is that I tend to crop...a lot! Usually my crops are minor but on ocassion I find myself wishing I had more resolution to work with. However, I fear that getting the A7R3 will just create other unforeseen issues (i.e. file size).
