Sony A7R vs Sony A7II? High megapixel count or image stabilization?

The Sony A7R sure was a monster on the spec sheet when it was released, with an unheard of megapixel count for a mirrorless camera and some stunning looks, but then the A7II made its way to market with killer image stabilization. How do you choose between the two? Which is right for you?

Today’s question from viewer DjSeanTacos – Debating between getting the Sony A7R (Mark 1) and the Sony A7II for photography. Anyone have any advice? Is the image stabilization on the A7II worth having fewer megapixels than the A7R? Thanks!
