I'm considering getting an A6400 + Tamron 70-180 to supplement my Pentax kit... specifically for fast action shooting....

I love my Tamron 70-180mm and am a fan of the newest generation of A6x00, but neither the Tamron nor the A6400 have optical stabilization.   On the long end you will be shooting at a full frame equivalent of 270mm which suggests that 1/500 is the slowest shutter speed you can muster without a tripod.  Just sayin ....
