Must say that the 70-350 with it’s 525mm it’s something so good that i doubt the 100-400 is worth the price tag.

I have a6600 and 70-350, and it's what I take when the weight matters. The only thing kind of not so great is that the 525 is the hard long reach (excluding digital & post crop).

Now that being said, i really liked the handling and shooting with the 100-400 GM, and I’m definitely getting it in the near future because I enjoyed it so much, the A6400 70-350 is the combo my wife uses, but i was not surprised the lenses where very close in performance.

So yes, I don’t know why but the 100-400GM was really fun to shoot with and maybe an A7RV would be something i am going to upgrade so I can use crop mode more often, but until then i am first getting the 100-400GM because besides birds i plan to shoot landscapes and kinda macro shots with it.


The guy gave some arguments why he enjoyed the 100-400 more than the 200-600. I kind of agreed with him, but I think the 100-400 was more versatile mainly because the environment he was in. That being said, it seems like the 100-400 does meet your needs.
