Lacking reach -- 100-400mm any experience?

Went the other day to an airshow with the kids. As I don't have any lenses with more reach than the 135mm, I thought to pack light and brought the dp2 and dp3 with the FT-120 1.2x conversion lens.

Afterwards I have been considering the Sigma100-400mm DG C lens for my sd Quattro H and a7Rii. Especially since TC-2001 won't work with ART lenses (bar the 70mm). The 150-600mm is too big and heavy as I'm not an avid user of telephoto.

Does anybody have any experience with the 100-400 and how it is in operations?

So with a 90mm (equivalent) lens one had to be a bit creative to get any photos of the show
