D4 vs D5 vs Z6 Image Quality

This is my first post after lurking the forums for a long time. So hello!

I have a Df with a nice collection of f1.4 primes from 28mm to 105mm, and a Z6 with the kit zoom and FTZ.
I much prefer the images coming the Df. To my eyes it has much better color and clarity that make images glow. Images coming from the Z6 look dull in comparison, the the colors are nowhere as natural (greens look especially suspect).

Work flow is similar - I shoot raw and process with Capture 1. I'm comparing images taken with the same primes. 
If not for the beautiful image quality though, the Df viewfinder, AF, ergonomics etc really suck, and it's too small to handle well with the lenses I use it with.

I have a chance to get a used D5 for a reasonable price. Question is how the D5 compares to the D4/ Df in this respect. I could also look for a D4 or a D4s, or perhaps a D850?

Nikon D4 Nikon D4S Nikon D5 Nikon D850 Nikon Df Nikon Z6
