Rent 100-400 II. i have 100-400 I and II. My friend has 70-200/2.8 + 2x and its not as good as 100-400 I.

What version of the 70-200/2.8?  If it's II or III, I would expect AF and IS with a 2xIII to be better than the 100-400 v1.  The 100-400 v1 is a virtual antique in terms of IS and AF speed, even if you have an optically-exceptional copy.
