My exemplar of the AF-S 200-500 delivers - under ideal shooting conditions - enough resolution even at the tele end wide open to satisfy me - as dedicated pixel peeper - on the Z7.

Therefore, I think there is nothing to win with the D750 reg. image quality.

Reg. the D500, the DX crop of the Z7 (II) has nearly as many pixels as the D500, therefore also not much to loose or to win here. Very maybe, the per pixel signal-to-noise ratio is very slightly better on the Z7 II compared to the D500.

As soon as we start to consider other factors like AF performance, the comparison gets of course much more complex, and there has been a lot of discussion on this forum over the years, e.g., comparing the AF of the D500 and Z7 (II) for wildlife, sports, or birding...
