ownership:I own this lens
compared to:FE 100-400
Canon EF 600 f4 IS L II with 2X TC
price paid:2200 USD
positive:Long reach and sharpness, plus can use 2X TC and still able to have good AF (use with A9 and A7rIII)
negative:Quite long compare to FE 100-400
comment:Great to have a lens that can reach 1200mm ( with 2X TC) and can still AF fast. Suppose can still have eye AF and animal eye AF when use with A9 (But A9's firmware for animal eye AF is not available as of the time of the review). In the past, the only 1200mm reach with good AF is Canon 1Dx with EF 600 f4 IS L II with 2X TC
