Went for the Sony remote over the cheaper non-branded remote for my A7Rii. You can fire the shutter remotely having switched on the camera's remote control function giving you instant shutter fire, two second delay or, if you set the camera to 'bulb', manually timed shutter firing. Bear in mind, cheaper remotes on the market provide these functions too.
So, what does the Sony remote provide in terms of additional functionality? Well, it allows you to control every aspect of the camera. You can access all the menu/settings and change them at will. You can also start and stop video recording via the 'start/stop' button. You can also remotely control the camera's picture review mode and send pictures to a printer if you have a printer set up for that. It feels well made and is pretty compact.
Is it worth the extra - IMO, yes.
