Wildlife APS-C upgrade advice

Hi,

I've been shooting wildlife with a Canon 650D and a 75-300mm III lens, and feel it's time to upgrade. I've found the autofocus, shooting speed and high iso performance particularly lacking.

I mainly shoot birds and am looking for a setup with a bit more reach, so ideally atleast 400mm on APS-C. I've been reading on potential upgrade avenues and the following look like the best options for me:

Canon 7D MK II & EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II USM

Nikon D500 & 200-500mm f/5.6E ED VR AF-S

From what I've heard, the canon setup seems to have better auto focus speed while the Nikon setup has a bit more sharpness and reach. Both of these setups fit into my budget when bought used, at around £2000

I'd love to hear some opinions on which setup would be better or if there is something else that I should consider.

Canon EOS 7D Canon EOS Rebel T4i (EOS 650D / EOS Kiss X6i) Nikon D500
