Two a99II's as primary stills and two a99's as backup stills cameras.

One a7RIII as primary video, with a99II's and Samsung NX-1 backup or B/C cam video.

My vote was for a7RIII as backup.

Ive fallen into a nice little routine since the A7 series is so small and goes everywhere with me. Buy the camera that suits me best in every second E mount release and relegate the former primary camera to back-up.

So primary - A7III;

Backup - A7R.

Other cameras I have but dont use expect for the occasional play: A6000, A100, A700 (recent replacement on a whim), Minolta Maxxum 7, Contax 167 MT, Contax RTS II.
We are all going to die but at least we can go down swinging
