Z5 low light performance
1

I'm considering a Z5 and 24-200 (and maybe a 14-30) as a travel kit and have some questions about low light performance - basically, what is considered low light for noise and autofocus purposes that leads to issues with FSI and the camera's AF?

My typical low light situation is something like a large European church or cathedral or an English country manor house. Would these be considered dim enough to create serious noise or AF issues? I'd often be shooting with a fair amount of DOF and using IBIS/VR (tripods are seldom allowed). Subject movement is not an issue.

Would a Z6ii or Z7ii perform significantly better in these situations? I don't otherwise need video, moving subject AF, a top LCD panel, a high frame rate or the resolution of the Z7.
