Not bad, not bad.

Nearly as good as the 510mm

My hands are really shakey... I'm sure I'm getting in excess of 5 stops in reality

Yes, in body IS is quite inferior because it doesn't stabilise the viewfinder especially at long focal lengths.

I reckon if the Canon systems weren't so heavy then then the users
would get better results.

Weight can be an advantage too... have you tried handholding a 20x megazoom without stabilisation?
