New 200-600mm G f5.6-6.3 or 100-400mm GM f4.5-5.6 + 1.4x?

With the new release of 200-600mm, we have more choices now:

200-600mm G f5.6-6.3

weight 2115 g, filter size 95mm?

internal zoom (!)

slightly better aperture (f6.3 vs 8),

can further use 1.4x in very good light (f11+?) to reach 840mm

100-400mm GM + 1.4x

weight 1562g (1395g + 167g), filter size 77mm

slightly shorter reach (560 vs 600),

more flexible to carry and put in existing bag

have option to Not put on 1.4x to get more light in cases.

$1000 more

Need to see the IQ and focus performances (on A7rIII for me).
