Are you guys seriously arguing about 1/3 stop difference like it's the end of the world? In the past weekend I have been shooting with the great EF-S 55-250mm F/4-5.6 STM at f/7.1 because that's about the best performing aperture there. On APS-C body with higher base ISO. I didn't have problem even with cloudy weather on the mountains. Why is f/7.1 so bad?

Yep. I can sacrifice the 1/3 stop of light to get 100mm more reach in a lighter package.

If you already have 100-400mm lens then be happy and use it. If you don't have one yet, go buy the 100-500mm and be happy too, pretty simple.
