No tripod use on this shot. And I agree with you 1/100 is not good with 600mm. I realized that right away when I saw my exif on this shot. At least a minimum of 1/600 plus the 1.6x (body). But I have my setting with aperture priority and the condition was not so great. Perhaps I should have shoot it manual mode or shutter priority so I can control the shutter speed.

IRC The 300mm f4 claims about 2 stops of stabilisation. That would put you at maybe 300x2x1.6=960mm... /2/2 = 1/240s shutter speed; though as that's on the limit, something even faster would probably be better.

With the v2.x firmware on the 7D I think you could set it to manual and auto-ISO, and that would allow you to set a "safe" shutter speed (e.g. 1/400s and forget about it) then choose your aperture (almost like you were using Av mode) and let the auto-ISO sort out the exposure.

For an overcast scene at 600mm using a TC, handheld, and at 1/100s I'd still call that a pretty good shot though!

haha , i don't always shoot wildlife (like 3rd times at this one , but know certain tips to do it ). some picture i need to push ISO up to 5000/6400 and stop down see how the lens work , it won't improve a lot while step down to F10 , but from 6.3 to F8 it remove the vignetting and it does affect exposure if you use frame weighted metering. sharpness and saturation improve a little at F8 but i feels ok stay with the F6.3 . The 9 rounded blade aperture work fine afterstop down and this lens seems have clean enough bokeh ( i only have a few days to borrow it , maybe do the test later on ~) .

this lens rendering well , as for that price . really worth every penny
most lens come with round aperture blade will keep perfect round after stop down 1 to 2 stop , afterwards will have some corners appear ( which on many of my lens )

Great point.
Thank you very much I appreciate it. I will definitely do that and how about if I set my iso max to let say 800 or 1600 in menu setting is that good? If I shoot in manual?

Maybe post a photo of yourself, just to give prejudice a face?

Excactly why do you think it would be better to produce in another country?

they told me about 8500 HKD which was like 1100 USD and 1069 was on B&H photo (not sure spell right or not , i am frank wong and from hongkong lol~)

if you use for a long time , go with tripod or monopod is recommended , keep your body status good to perform better and not shaky . But Tamron lens VC does not detect tripod like some canon lens , it need to be turn of while using tripod or long exposure . but for bird shooting my shutter always get faster than 1/400 at least , no problem even without VC

If I don't get the shots I want with the gear I have, the only optics I need to examine is the mirror on the bathroom wall. The root cause will be there.
