i had the sigma 100-400 dg dn for e mount via tze-01. very very sharp, but unfortunately it stopped working after the last fw update and techart didn't fix it until today (sold it).

i also had the tamron 100-400 some years ago on my d750. af was very unreliable.

i am looking for a replacement for my nikon 200-500. you think twice if you take the this big and heavy lens with you.

since i am just a hobbyist i am not willing to pay 3K euro for the new z 100-400.

my thoughts are, either

- to get the older sigma 100-400 dg os (your version)

- get a used nikon 80-400

- keep my 200-500 until sigma or tamron are making z-mount lenses

I also thought about a used Nikon 80-400,  but they are not so ahqrp at 400mm. The Sigma 100-400 5.0-6,3 DG is sharper and reliable . I used it 3 years ago on my D750 and was very happy with the results (sold it later to get a 300pf)

light and sharp - that 's the reason why I bought that zoom again . And for me as an enthusiast, the IQ and AF speed is sufficient (don't need faster AF )
