Tamron 150-500 vs FE 100-400

I really want to like the Tamron and it’s  macro ability at 150mm is stellar.

The comparison between these 2 lenses is hard because what i find is they are made for different reasons but also kinda overlapping some areas.

Fot me It comes down to:

  • Sony, lighter, 100mm, 400mm macro, a little better OSS, better AF-C.
  • Tamron, 150mm macro, 500mm, still good VC, great AF, arca build in collar.

For me this means that the Sony is more a landscape lens you can capture birds with, Tamron is the other way around.
Money is always a factor , but i can afford only 1 and why pay more if the Tamron is good enough, which is what I struggle. Some help? Advice?
