This is my primary shooting rig; with the 100-400 and the 7D, you'll really want to try and keep your shutter above 1/500s or better; even if that means upping your ISO significantly.

In direct sun, I can usually get away with ISO 200, partial sun: ISO 400 and shade: ISO 640-800; sometimes into the 1600 range if it's heavy shadow.

See my sig link for plenty of examples, plus EXIF, in my Flickr stream.

"The easiest way to improve your photos is to adjust the loose nut between the shutter release and the ground."

With IS engaged I can shoot @400mm at around 1/250 to 1/200, beyond that I'm pushing it. Gotta be using good hand-holding technique, too. The 100-400 uses a much older revision of IS, that's the reason it's so noisy, and it also tends not to give you as many compensating stops as some of the newer lenses.

You can up your ISO as mentioned, using a monopod is also a possibility.

With the 7D, do not be afraid to push the ISO in order to get a faster shutter speed. My default starting shutter speed with the 100-400L on the 7D is 1/1000sec. I will raise the ISO and open the aperture before slowing down the shutter speed. My 100-400L is very sharp wide open at f/5.6@400mm.
