Z DX lens on Z6

I am wondering

1.what kind of image the ZDX lens will give on full frame like Z6. I think Z6 will automatically detect a crop lens and only part of sensor will be activated. So it will look like more zoomed in, compared to full frame image. However, the kit lens starts from 16 (16-50mm). Will the image look wide enough at 16mm end? (I do have AFP 10-20mm though).

2.I am now torn between between buying maybe preowned Z6 24-70F4 kit to complement my Z6 for video, or to invest in Z50 and its kit lens. Both will be used for video essentially. Since I used MFT cameras like Panasonic for b rolls, it seems like Z50 will have even better video image, than MFT, which is very very usable (recall GH series). On the other hand, having two z6 cameras is great for sharing batteries and cards. Having two different types of camera batteries and cards is a bit of hindrance. However, I used D7500 for b rolls up to now, which uses fast SD cards for 4k video (with crop); Z50 doesn't have crop in 4k and uses its full sensor.

So what would you advise?
