Got my Z 100-400mm yesterday and for comparison shot it at 300mm and compared to AF-P 70-300mm at the same 300mm with the same settings on a Z6ii (Aperture set at F7.1, Auto ISO, F7.1, Z lens at 1/400sec, F lens at 1/350 sec).  At about 25 feet, took pictures of a bookshelf and the titles on the book bindings.  Looked at the images about 50% from center.  There was a bit of an overall color difference as white paint was brighter with the 100-400 lens but could not see much of a difference in resolution until I compared the pictures at 300% in Photoshop.  Very slight differences in pixel usage that were more obvious at 400% but surprisingly close.  Not a rigorous test but enough to convince me to keep the AF-P lens for when I need a lighter and smaller setup with a bit less reach.
