For the best overall image quality (disregarding crop factor in the case of the D500)...

  1. D750
  2. D500
  3. Z 7II w/FTZII

I will test this at some point but does one set-up have a distinct advantage?

Is a higher mp sensor an advantage or disadvantage when using a lens like this?

I would suggest that the choice depends on your subject matter. If it is relatively slow moving or stationary the Z7II will be the best. But for action requiring good AF the D500 will give in focus shots at a high framerate. Image quality is not just about the size of the sensor you need the shot to be in focus to even consider the image quality.

+1.

all else being equal, more pixels is better.

...but, in focus is better than out of focus.
