BETTER OVERALL IQ WITH D850 - AF-P 70-300MM 4.5-5.6E OR AF-S 300MM 4.0E PF?

I'm trying to decide between two lenses, the AF-P 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6 or the AF-S 300mm f/4.0E PF. I am only concerned about overall image quality, particularly sharpness. This would be a lens for a walkabout. I realize the advantage of the zoom focal range, but assuming I'll be shooting at 300mm most often, does anyone have an opinion about the two lenses? The price difference is huge and if the difference in IQ isn't that great it will make a difference. Your thoughts are appreciated.
