Hi there, if I owned the Fujifilm 70-300 mm F4-5.6 R LM OIS WR lens which body would be best suited for taking images at air-shows along with wildlife including birds in flight and macro pictures of dragonflies and butterflies? In an ideal world I would prefer the 100-400 lens but at almost twice the cost.... Some reviewers have commented the XT-4 would not be the best when compared with the XT-3. Others have commented the Fujifilm AF is not the best, and needs tweaking. Thought and impressions much appreciated. Thanks for reading. John

The CAF of not just the xt3, XT4, but even the Xt2 is absolutely fine for the air show. In 2019 I had the Xt2 and 50-230 and it worked great

So I absolutely sure that now my xt3 with the 70-300 will do even better. 
Regarding the 70-300 vs the 100-400, I wouldn’t worry that much as planes are passing multiple times over the airport and in the end you don’t so much focal length.
