Re: 100-400 paired with A9/1.4x TE or A7IV in crop mode?

Now I am questioning if Sony is the right system for you. Many people I know have had great success with the Canon EOS R5 and R6 paired with the RF 100-500mm lens. Unlike the Sony, the Canon actually can autofocus very effectively down to f/22, with eye-AF capabilities. The lenses are within 2 ounces of each other, I think the Canon is slightly lighter. From experience, the 100-400mm can AF with 2x extender on that combo easily.

The only reason why I switched back to Sony is the fact that I don't prefer using adapted lenses, and I enjoy using the 600mm primes, so the 100-500mm was a non-factor for me.
