The Z5 looks a great package and should do very well for Nikon.

Not at UK prices I'm sorry to say. Look at these from WEX, a leading seller over here:

Z6 body only £1549

Z6 with FTZ adapter £1649

Z5 with 24-50 £1719 (judgement reserved about the IQ of this lens)

Z5 with 24-50 and adapter £1859

Z6 with 24-70 £2099

And so on For less than £300 I could get the better camera (Z6) and almost certainly better lens (24-70). I really don't understand this pricing. I expected the Z5 to be a Canon RP killer (or at least competitor) but now ........?

So for a budget FF camera I was expecting to be tossing up between the RP and the Z5 at similar prices but no competition.  Now I don't know. I want to move away from my Sony APS-C into FF and I truly believe the future is Canikon but for the price of the R6 I could more or less get a Z7. Decisions, decisions but I think the Z5 is off the table.

What did the poet say - "How happy I could be with either, were t'other dear charmer away"!
