I use the 5D with the 70-200 all the time in run&gun situations (concerts) for years now, and never had any problem. It is certainly not too heavy to use handheld. The Canon bayonet is sturdy enough to take the weight.

Luc,

Are you talking about shooting video or stills? I have a non-IS 70-200 2.8 and really can't shoot handheld video... not because of the weight, more because the images look bad, either jello, or shake. I shoot video with this lens an awful lot, but I always have it on sticks or a crane.
