Who needs IS on 400mm lens...

I don't like the hassle of carrying a monopod or tripod, so even with a 1.4x TC in place, I shoot handheld. These were taken (without TC) at speeds most would avoid, but it is possible to shoot at lower speeds and still get sharp results. Both handheld with no other type of support used.
