Nikon Z8 + Nikon FTZ II + Nikkor 200-500mm f/5.6VR?

Hey everyone, got a question for those of you who have used this combo. I've been away from my photography obsession for about 4-5  years and at the time was shooting sports and wildlife with a D750 and D500.

Mirrorless wasn't all that great back then, but the Z8 is looking pretty nice. The size, AF and FPS is what's attractive. It's also insanely expensive for a non-professional like myself. Still, I've had a rough few years and feel like treating myself to early bankruptcy. J/K.

I really like my 200-500mm f/5.6 for birding & sports, and was wondering how well this combo works together. Is it worth buying the Z8 if I'm going to be shooting with a DSLR lens? How's the focus speed, accuracy and image quality compared to shooting on a D500/D750 with the same lens? Thanks for the input!
