Am I making mistakes or is the Tamron 150-600 g2 rubbish at catching moving things?
Would I get better results with the Canon 100-400 ii and 1.4x TC? I understand the 100-400 has better AF but not sure how much the converter affects AF speed

The Tamron G2 is not the best for tracking fast moving objects. I have had good success with birds against the sky, but not against busier backgrounds. I see this as a good lens for more static subjects. It can give astounding results within its limits.  Not sure a direct comparison of the 150-600 G2, and the 100-400 L II + TC, is reasonable given the 2x price differential. You get what you pay for.

I am curious why you disabled iTR -- it's specifically designed to help with tracking, after all. That's what it does.

Regards,
Dan
