Tamron 70-300mm vs Sony FE 70-300mm

Hello

I have the Sony FE 70-300mm as my telephoto lens. Recently bought the 100-400GM. So, now, 70-300mm will be something I take when 100-400GM is too heavy and bulky, i.e., it is now not my main telephoto lens.

I am reading into the Tamron 70-300mm, as it is much lighter (by ~300g) in comparison. Have you gone through such change? Do you miss the OSS and AF? I think I can live without the OSS, as mostly this lens is used for landscape or kids running/outdoor sports. Neither needs stabilization, I think. But AF is something I believe would matter a lot to me.

Any thoughts?

Thanks
