Comparison of max f stops for various tele lenses for mirrorless!

I have just pulled this together to give people an idea of where Fuji now stacks up against the competition with super tele's and its quite interesting. I haven't included the 70-300 but I do think that lens in itself is head and shoulders better than anything on any other platform currently, considering it is really a 100-450 and takes tc's too, Fuji really pulled out all the stops on that one, the mfd, size, ois/ibis etc really is a special lens.

For super tele though, I think Tamron just released a real game-changer for Fuji, the 150-600 is just a bit too slow for here in the UK, to be honest I was totally disappointed in the £3K Canon 100-500  RF on the R7 biggest waste of money ever, although I think it will be much better on the R5 and R3 with some caveats.  The 200-600 on Sony is just too bulky for me and the other 100-400's too short considering their size. The Tamron 150-500 worked well on the A7IV but often, again it was too short and a good aps-c option for Sony still doesn't exist.

Thankfully Tamron have stepped up and looking at the table below, I will definitely get this over the 100-400 initially although ibis/ois on Sony was very limited, so I am interested to see how it works on Fuji.
