Z5 For Vintage ai and ais Lenses?

Hi-

I have several vintage ai and ais Nikkor lenses. I really enjoy using them on my Sony a6500. However, my eyes are not as good as they used to be and I am thinking of getting a camera that has a better evf for manual focus.  I also like the idea of not having the aps-c crop factor.

If you presently use a Z5 with ai and ais manual focus lenses can you please tell me how well it works and any pros and cons?

Would another Z model be any better?  I plan to continue using the Sony a6500 for most things, but would like the Z primarily for manual focus vintage glass.  I already own Nikon to Sony adapters, so another option would be a Sony with bdtter evf, but I think I'd prefer a Nikon dedicated to use with my vintage mf lenses.

Thanks
