Thoughts on the Z50 + 16-50

So long story short, I do urbexing (checking out abandoned buildings), which in some cases requires me to have a very small bag (or no bag at all) and preferrably a small camera.

So far I've been using my 24-200 and my Z7, but even that combo is a bit large. I had considered getting a Z50 + the 16-50 as a substitute (I genreally don't need the long FL anyway, but there's no way I'm taking my 24-70 2.8 on urbexing trips in abandoned buildings--too expensive, so 24-70mm equivalent is fine).

My biggest concner is the high ISO noise performance between the Z50 and the Z7. Is the Z50 better due to its lower resolution despite having a smaller sensor?

I would basically be keeping my Z7 anyway so this would be either a buy/no buy situation (for the Z50 and lens). I'm also thinking the Z50 might also come in handy for other things too, like taking walks or short weekend trips (where photography may not be my primary focus).
