A little late to the party, but congrats on the new lens!

I own both lenses you mentioned. And both are very capable of producing excellent results. As a one lens solution, I think you made the right choice. The 100-400 is a great lens.

I just want to add the 70-200 is no slouch either. I’ve used this lens at Motorsport events and have been very satisfied. Although I typically bring a long lens (200-600mm) as well for longer shots. And use the 70-200 for panning and around the paddock.

Here’s a few examples with the 70-200.

These are awesome, so crispy. Your technique must be fantastic.
