Sheer indulgence.

I have both, and the 1.4 and 2x teleconverters, will keep both but were I starting out from scratch, and having just bought an X-S10, the 70-300mm would be the one I would buy.

Light, compact and optically very close the combination of the 70-300mm and the X-S10 together with either converter ticks the boxes for me and the 100-400mm is now firmly in the 'carry when needed', static use category or if using in poor weather.

The 70-300mm hits a very sweet spot and whilst I love my 100-400mm and X-T4 combo, my back begs to differ!
