Put a canon 100-400 MK II on an SL1 body ? Love the look of photos of birds taken with lens and as of right now the SL1 is what I have.

Why not? Make the most of the gear you have. I used to put my 70-200L on my old Rebel XTi.

Just remember to support the weight of the HEAVIEST item..the camera body largely 'hanging from the lens' is no issue at all.

I mounted my 300D, with a failed AF Submirror pin, so that it was MF only, on a 100-400L, when my 20D would not recognise a iffy CF card, that was working the the 300D. I got one of my all time favorite photos using it too. So sure why not! Actually you get a hugely greater improvement in image quality by putting really great lenses in front of a cheap/older body than you will ever get from putting the latest and greatest bodies behind so so lenses.

Why it should be problem at all?

Get the grip for better handling.

Before purchasing the 100-400 II, I borrowed a copy from CPS - which we took to the beach for a long weekend - late summer of 2015 (along with the 11-24mm/4L & EF-S 10-18mm STM).

I spent an afternoon - not sure why - walking around Rehoboth Beach with the 100-400 II on our SL1. Looked a bit silly, but worked fine.

Surprisingly, a very productive shoot. While mostly used - that weekend - on a 5D2 & 1D3, many usable images were obtained - mounted to the little SL1.

Naturally, I returned home and purchased all 3 lenses. Nice glass.

Why not? I've used my 580EX II on my G15. Looks stupid. Works just fine.

LOL.... I bought one for my G12... my first modern digital camera. I even bought a flash bracket (Newton FR3) so I could flip it up for portraits. It did look a little odd but it worked.

This so much! Good glass on an ok body is better than ok glass on a good body! :-)
I used my 70-200 f2.8 L on my Rebel until I got my 5d2.
