2. If not, as I can have access to both at the same time, what sort of subject would you choose in low light that would make the comparison easier/easiest? (assuming that is a sensible question)

When I wanted to compare the Z6 and Z7 for myself not long ago, I shot books on a bookshelf, with suitably low light levels. (I was interested in performance at iso 6400.) These shots provided deep shadow areas, where noise would be at its worst, as well as writing on the book spines to show how well detail was preserved. There are a few examples in my gallery if you are interested. (Note that these are not straight out of camera, but instead, sized equally and then processed with noise reduction and sharpening.)
