Have Canon 650D and can only buy one and cannot upgrade camera or lens in future. I want to shoot birds in flight. Which of these will serve me best?

On face value, it looks like a case of 1-stop quicker vs reach of Tamron.

Personally, I would go with the Tamron that gives extra reach. Don't think the 1-stop is significant enough. BUT, this is based on what I have read and have not actually used either lens as I am a Nikon-shooter.

Hi Luislang
I have the 100-400 and is very happy with it. I'm thinking about getting the Tamron for the extra reach but won't let the 100-400 go. I just think the extra reach will be wonderfull.
