What will be the display size? Will you show the Z7 image at the same size as you would the Z6 image? If yes, then the reduced and compressed Z7 image will most likely look a bit better.

Target display is a 12 inch IPAD pro or Microsoft Surface. Yes the images will be viewed at the same size.

My first thoughT is if the images are shown on the same size display, and they both come from the same physical size sensor, that there’s not much of an advantage of having a higher megapixel count...but there might be.

For the majority of circumstances, you will not see any difference. However there are some conditions where one or the other camera might stand out. For example, if cropping heavily, the Z7 can produce a sharper image. Or in very low light, the Z6 may have an advantage.
