I hand-hold my 500mm f/4L IS USM pretty much every single day.  One of the major components of my business is birding/photography trips where we shoot pretty much all day long for every day of the trip  Most of the participants hand-hold.  Hand-holding a big lens takes some getting used to but it really isn’t so bad once you have gotten used to it.

Of course there are plenty of different ways to get good results.  If you want a good tripod setup that Opteka GH-1 on a decent set of legs is really tough to beat not just in price but in performance.
