For 400mm EFL, you want to be in APS-C. A 300mm consumer zoom (usually 55-300 or 70-300) will give you 450mm EFL and better image quality, all other things being the same.

What will be the same? F-stop min 5.6. Quality for 300mm zoom at the end is not great. AF speed questionable. 4K for captures? Forget it. Size? Bigger.

What are you looking for in a small aperture? If it's shallow DoF, a superzoom with a smallish sensor won't give you that. And I don't think AF performance can be directly predicted from the sensor size - for that, you really have to wait for test results. Btw, 4k does not magically depend on sensor size either. In fact, the Magic Lantern project has retrofitted some Canon DSLRs with 4k ability.
