So I'm weighing up the relative benefits of the Z7 and Z6 II. Both I would combine with the 24-200 since this offers maximum flexibility without needing lens changes. The Z7 has worse autofocus which might impair some spontaneous wildlife/action photography? But on the other hand, the greater megapixels will be handy when cropping. The Z6 II has worse (but still good) resolution, better autofocus and probably more future-proofed

I have both the Z7 and the Z6 II. I think you are overestimating the difference between the two. I have yet to encounter a situation where I thought one could signficantly outperform the other. I do think the Z6 II is a bit more future proofed. For example, there is an upcoming firmware upgrade for the Z6 II and Z7 II that will add some enhancement to eye detect focus. But we've likely seen the last of the focus improvements for the original Z6 and Z7.
