Last week in Florida I rented a 100-400 to put on my 50D after I dropped my 7D and 400 f 5/6 in the marsh (7D a total loss; 400 being cleaned and repaired). This was my first time using the 100-400, and I appreciated the IS vs my 400, though the images were only as sharp as the 400 if I set aperture at 7-10. The 50D focuses like the 40D, and I didn't have any problems with it, though of course I missed the 7D focus points. Here are three examples using this combination (Long-billed curlew in first and third, Caspian tern--with Royal tern in background--in second):
