I've seen a used Minolta 100-400 F4,5-6,1 locally and the price is really good compared to these, but I don't know if the IQ can catch up. Anybody knows?

Having owned both there is no comparison.

The 100-400 is small & light for it's focal range but AF is slow, at 400mm it's an f6.7 & IQ is average.

The 70-400 is big & heavy , focuses faster (still could be improved upon though) & is very sharp.
