    I am debating about the 2 combos Sony FE 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6 GM or Sony FE 70-200mm f/2.8 GM + 2.0 TC
    There is price to consider
    There is the obvious f/2.8 from 70-200 which the FE 100-400 wont offer
    There is Image Quality to be considered (has anyone tried both?) what are the results?
    The other consideration is sealing of the 100-400 as it extends vs the 70-200 is all internal.
    Which would you prefer if price is irrelevant but IQ?

    I would consider getting the 70-200 f2.8 with the 2x TC.
    To some degree you get the best of both worlds, a 70-200 f2.8 that can be extended to 140-400 f5.6 with slight but probably not significant loss of IQ.
