I had the 150-500 and the f6.3 is quite slow. The lens works well on a nice sunny day but if you get a bit of cloud cover or poor light it really makes a difference. I also found it was a bit soft right out at 500mm and had to pull it back to about 450mm, maybe it was just my copy. Anyways I sold it and got the Canon 400 f5.6L as I only used it at the long end and had the 70-200 f/4 IS to cover the shorter end. I have no regrets selling it thats for sure. If I had to choose between your two it would be the 100-400.

I'm not a moon shooter but I took this shot with the Canon 100-400f4.5-5.6L IS + 1.4 II extender.

Here is my version with the Sigma 150-500.
