I'm going on vacation where there will be lots of wildlife.  I have a Canon system but bought a Sony A6000 (crop) for my vacation.  My longest lens (kit lens) is Sony 55-210 (E-mount).  My friend recommended I rent the Sony 70-400 (A-Mount) and use the converter.  For my Canon I already own a 70-300 and know that I could get a metabones adapter.  What I don't know is how well the converters actually work. 

What are the pros/cons between the Sony 70-400 with converter or the Canon 70-300 with converters. 

thanks in advance

The Sony 70-400 is a very good lens, although it is heavy. On the A6000 it will probably feel a bit off balance, especially with the LA-EA4, but it will work very well and I assume you know that it will be a 105-600mm. The Canon 70-300 with converters are an unknown quantity on this forum. :D
