Is the Z50 a half Z7 ?

I do landscape photography with a D5600 for 3 years and am actually think of switching to mirrorless for a couple of reasons.

I would like so much a Z7 + 14-30, but it's way to expensive for the moment (maybe some day...)

Thus I am hesitating between a Z50 or a Z5, strongly thinking about the last one but mainly for the quality of Z glass : 14-30 and 24-200
But Z5 + 14-30 + 24-200 is still an expensive kit that's why I am thinking also of just buying the Z50 ank keeping my actual lenses (10-20 AF-P, 16-80 and 70-300 AF-P)

Now the question, puting lenses aside, is basicly the Z50 half a Z7? Since it does have same pixel density and same sensor technology, if I use the same lens on both will I have the exact same quality, same DR, but with two times more pixels for the Z7 ?

Or another way of saying if a 2 shots pano with the Z50 will be same IQ that one shot with Z7 ?

In this case is it an advantage to have bigger pixels (Z5, Z6) for better quality ?

Sorry if they are some technical mistakes in what I am saying...

I am actually very pleased with D5600 + 16-80 in terms of IQ, but the lens I use the most is the 10-20 and it is not really "wow"..

Is the 14-30 substantially better ? It's hard to find direct comparisons Z50 + 10-20 vs Z6/7 + 14-30

Thank you !
