They both have STARVIS, for what it’s worth. The Z model has been the forum goto camera since it came out in late ‘16 because of that.IPC-HDW5231R-ZE 1/2.8” 2Megapixel progressive scan STARVIS™ CMOS

It would seem after finding some videos on youtube comparing them both that the STARVIS is very much better, just like y'all have shown here.
So I am changing my build to the ZE model.
Another diff is cosmetic. The front of the ZE is almost entirely black, whereas the front of the Z has white metal in the areas between the lens and infrared. For me, the Z blends much better against the soffit/trim of my house than the ZE.
