What is the best option to jump into MILC Z world ?

Hello dpreview community.

I keep scratching my head, I don't know what to decide. Maybe you could help me.

I was so excited about jumping into the Z world thanks to the first MILC APS-C from Nikon. The Z50.

But I keep reading on Dpreview forum that APS-C is an dead end and that is better to invest into an Z7 ( because of IBIS, AF coverage, FF sensor... ) and keep all my DX lenses and use it in crop mode for now.

In europe, we can pre-order the new Z50 from 1149€ with the FTZ adapter.
But in same time, the price of Z6/Z7 decrease quite heavily.
Now we can find second hand Z7 from 2500€ with FTZ or new on the grey market from 2300€.
Even better but not as good in crop mode, we can find the Z6 brand new with ftz adapter on amazon for 1400€.

I'm so lost. Sometime I just want to leave the idea to buy new thing and keep my D7200 because I'm affraid to do a bad investement for the futur.

What should I do ? 1) Close my eyes on futur and buy the Z50 for 1149€ 2) Wait to get an Z7 with all my DX lenses in crop mode and buy later good FF lenses ? 3) Do nothing for now with my wallet and wait ?

Please help me to decide because until know I was convicted that the Z50 was the good option.
