Fuji 100-400 or adapted canon?

I am considering various long telephoto options for an x-T3

So far I concluded:

1. The canon 100-400 L II seems to provide the best test results among the candidates, better than the Fuji:

2. Above 400mm, probably the new bigma (60-600mm) is the best, but also the heaviest, weighs almost 6lbs/3kg!! I'll give it a pass...

3. The Tamron 150-600 G2 I considred before, I'll probably rule out, it seems softer compared to the canon at all focal lengths.

Speaking of a many adapted lenses here: focusing accuracy and speed also counts, don't want to lag much behind these.

So far it seems to be down to the Fuji and Canon 100-400 mk II (+Fringer adapter). Any thoughts?

One but not a deciding argument for the canon, is that I also have micro 4/3 bodies, I could use the lens with those too.
