70D vs. Panasonic G7

First off, I am a very happy Canon 6D owner. It does great in low light. I find myself more and more being drawn toward sports and wildlife. For this I have a Tamron 150-600mm lens, which performs well. However, it is a beast, and I find the 6D's autofocus too often lacking. I am thinking of two options. The idea would be too have a compact telephoto package in my bag along side the 6D. Both options involve purchasing a Canon 200mm 2.8 L II lens, as this is very sharp and compact. And used it is affordable.

Option 1:

Canon 70D. With a 1.4x Extender. This should give me an effective focal length of 320 without the extender, and a decent 448mm with the extender. 70D has a good autofocus system.

Option 2:

Panasonic G7 with the T Smart Metabones adapter. It sounds like autofocus works well with the 200mm. I would get a 400mm effective reach. I'm betting autofocus won't be as great as the 70D. However, I'm very curious what I could do with the 4k photo mode. So often you know where the athlete or animal is going to be. Can set up, get the moment, then in post pick the one image that fits. I believe the 4k photo mode crops the image by 1.3, so I would have more like 520mm.
