Z280 versus FS5M2 in low light

I was wondering how these two matched up in low light. A lot of people online complain that the low light on the FS5M2 is not good - which suprises me since the sensor is so large. I know it also depends on the glass you put in front of it. Maybe people use the wrong settings and complain about the results? I know these are two completely different cameras. Thanks.

Re: Z280 versus FS5M2 in low light

Before you can compare the cameras you first have to decide what shooting mode? S-LOG or REC709? And if REC709, then what paint settings? Settings that make the camera look it's best? Or settings that might work better for lowlight? And what speed of lens on the FS5? There are too many variables to just answer a blanket question like "which is better?". But in my opinion, I think both of them are good enough in low light that people shouldn't be complaining about either one.
