Well, I can't help you when it comes to underwater shooting.

With regard to DR the Z7 doesn't lose anything to the D850. But all bets are off (as far as my knowledge goes) when it comes to AF performance inside an underwater housing, and at depth. You'll need to talk with someone with that experience.

AF is same as above water, just can be very challenging at times because ... wildlife.

DR I assume is the same.   I'm thinking AF is a mixed bag, with D850 better for moving stills and quick grab shots, and the Z7 better (perhaps) for slower, macro shots and video.

IBIS - I don't know if that would be of benefit or not, never having used it.
