What a difference a year makes.

Most of the time I've been shooting with my a7R. The a900 is no longer in use (in case anyone wants to make me an offer!).

The only challenge to the a7R as primary camera is the a77ii, but this depends entirely on the photography subject. It's a great option for wildlife/birding, and even travel with just the CZ16-80.
a7riii- Voigtländer 15/4.5, 110/2.5 M; Zeiss Loxia 21/2.8, 35/2, 50/2, 85/2.4, Batis 85/1.8, 135/2.8; Sony 24-105/4 G; Sigma 70/2.8 M; Tamron 150-500 f5-6.7

Sony SAL 135/2.8 STF, SAL70-200/2.8 G

Felt a little odd selecting a77/a77ii in both the primary and backup polls but I cannot be the only one who has settled on the a-mount aps-c as my comfort zone.
Love the a77ii and it means instant familiarity with my a77 on the other shoulder

I wasn't sure, but I guess the A77m2 warrants this position the most.

No, it's still a machine.

I like my A7, the transition between in focus and out of at close and rather close distances is better than the A6000 so I tend to reach for it more often. Lucky me I don't much mind green blobs.

If we're talking real "feel" though it would have to be the XD7. The A7 shutter sounds serious, the A6000 needy and the XD7 just feels sublime.

Well, it was A77II until two weeks ago. It is A99II now and I don't think I will ever look back. :D
I should go full frame long time ago...
How small is small?
Well, if it's bigger than 23x16mm, then it is huge!

I voted a7rII, but second is my trusty a99 and sometimes it's the primary just to feel the still better things on it compared to the a7rII, like builtin GPS and mostly for the screen hingy???...
