First of all the EF100-400 will not suddenly become obsolete, but if you plan to switch to RF relatively soon and are on a budget it might be worth waiting (my guess is that up to 400 mm it is basically an EF100-400 f/4.5-5.6 with an extra 100 mm on top). However expect it to be priced a bit over the EF100-400's introduction price, which might be in conflict with what you are willing to spend (cf. RF 70-200 f/2.8 vs. EF 70-200 f/2.8).

I actually don't plan to switch to a Canon mirrorless anytime soon.
