D500 > A6400 for Wildlife

Well, my D500 + Sig 100-400 just got messed up and my Insurance will be paying the cash for replacements. So I have a chance to change. I'd go to the G9(my wife has it) if it wasn't for the contrast detect AF as it can be frustrating trying to find and keep focus.

I've been pretty happy with this kit but the Sig has it's limitations in reach and AF speed.

So without getting into lens questions has anyone gone from a D500(DSLR) to the A6400 for birds. If you look at the Dpreview lens review/comparison it beats the D500 on a few key items like metering and low light!


I can't even find an A6400 locally to even hold.

Anyone who has made this kind of leap please respond.
