The 7D as I'm using it now with the 70-200's mount screwed into my tripod seems to move much more than I want. The 70-200 is a balancing act at times and wind or even Mirror shake have been factors.  It's natural I guess based on the size of the lens.

Are you sure that it's the mirror shake. I had problem with mine and I found that I was causing the shake by pressing the shutter. Switching to an infrared switch solved my problems.

Wind is more dependent on the quality of the head than anything else. I upgraded to a "cheap-good" head a Sirui. Cheap, very strong but "quirky".
