100-400Z to replace 500PF+70-200f2.8?

For wildlife, mainly animals, I carry a 70-200 f2.8 on my D850 and a 500PF5.6 on my Z9 (FTZII). But always looking for a package which will get the job done, but I have to carry less.

I don't have any Z glass yet, but looking to move into that (hopefully it's not only FOMO!)

I am thinking of getting the 100-400, and maybe carrying only that on safari, instead of carrying two bodies and lenses.

It'll be easier to carry! I will loose some reach at both ends, but then looking at my pics very few are shot at 70mm, most are 85mm or more. Will also miss the f2.8. Bokeh at the shorter end will not be the same with the zoom I presume.

Is the trade off be going to be worth it?
