I have both but much prefer the 100-400m because it is much easier to locate a subject at 100mm & then zoom in to 400mm whereas the 500mm makes it quite difficult to locate an object particularly if it is moving.

I do not find the zoom particularly heavy or cumbersome  , it is a lot lighter & smaller than the excellent 70-400 mm.

I am quite good at tracking with both eyes - one thru the lens and one watching a fast moving critter!
