Personally, I have the feeling that Nikon isn't think of matching Z cameras to an F equivalent. I think they've thought out the Z product range from scratch, which is a good thing. For the Z mount they've started with a clean slate.

So, the Z6 is almost a D750 or D780; the same resolution for a start, and in the case of the D780 same sensors. The Z7 is mainly just a high res Z6, so really sits between the D750 and the D850, as it has a comparable resolution to the D850 but features more like the D750. And so on.

Same in DX. The Z50 is much more than a mirrorless D5600, somewhere approaching a D7500.
