I have the 100-400 and the 70-200 f4 L.  The 70-200 is definitely a sharper lens.  But, my workhorse is the 100-400, which I use mostly for bird photography.  For me, it produces excellent images and I don't know what I'd do without it.  I purchased the 100-400 as a replacement for a Sigma 150-500 F5.6-6.3.  That lens is now gathering dust, the differences between the Canon and the Sigma are like night and day.

If you own the 70-200II already, just add the Mark III 2x tele converter.

If not, the 100-400L is canon's best offering at the moment for decent birding.
