Z5 vs Z6 for low-light

OK I know the Z6 has a BSI sensor and the Z5 doesn't, etc, etc.

Does anyone have both of these bodies that can comment on whether the Z6 is significantly better than the Z5 for low-light.

Long story short, I sold off my Z6 during a promo (got a good amount for it so I'm not necessarily regretting it) but have contemplated geting a Z5 as a low-light body now that they are on sale for $1000.  But if there is a significant difference in high-ISO performance on the Z6, then maybe I'll wait.   I don't need it bad enough to spend $1400 on the Z6 and do like the dual cards slots on the Z5 and Z6 II.

Thoughts?
