If you want serious video, Z7II gets destroyed by R5. Not even close. The only advantages of Z7II with the external monitor(versus standalone R5) are HDR monitoring and cheaper recording media.

If you get "seriously serious" about video - a 5 minute clip can easily be a 5 GB file size.

True. When shooting high quality video, you really have to plan out. Shoot perhaps 10second clips (for family videos). Do not shoot long and drawn out clips; they get shortened during editing  anyway. I have found 10seconds to may be 15seconds clips are enough when finally putting everything together during editing .

The principles are same as spraying-and-praying stills shooting where each raw photo takes 30MB and your XQD card fills up after 500 stills. A 250 GB SSD costs $30, so it is a bit more economical for video.
