So Nikon's DSLR line-up (full frame) is:

D610 (entry) -> D780 (mid-level "prosumer") -> D850 (high MP "pro") -> D6 (flagship "pro")

Note: CURRENT and existing.

What does a Z lineup look like if there is both a Z7 and Z8?

Z5 (entry) -> Z6 (mid-level "prosumer") -> Z7 (high MP "prosumer") -> Z8 (higher MP "pro") -> Z9 (flagship "pro")

Note: Some CURRENT and existing, but more than half is SPECULATION and imaginative.

You can't compare imaginative cameras with existing ones.

I think you mean "imaginary".  Something like the original Fuji X100 was quite an imaginative camera, but it was certainly real

Forget about Z5, when (if) that comes the Z6 will be phased out. Forget about the Z8 and the Z9 for a long time. When one of those comes, the Z7 will be phased out and replaced.

Clearly you're just guessing, but you make it sound so definite.
