I have both along with the Tamron 200-500. I like all three. The Tamron is the sharpest of the three, but the 100-400 has the most pleasing bokeh.

I terms of weight, the mirror is the lightest, the 100-400 in the middle (and not a heavy lens by any means) the Tamron the heaviest, but still very useable hand held.

Given the choice, between the mirror and 100-400, I would go for the 100-400 due to the flexibility and superior bokeh.  I also find it a touch sharper than the mirror and a stop faster at the long end.
