IS and Focus Hunting

My 510 tends to focus hunt far more than my 300 and 330 in relatively low light and some low contrast situations, and occasionally it simply gives me out of focus images. Particularly frustrating with 70-300 and 40-150 lenses. I've checked out both cameras with all lenses, cleaned contacts, tried various exposure and focusing settings, etc.

I have tended to leave IS on. Could this be contributing to the problem? Anyone else had this experience with the 510. Should I simply turn IS off until I know I need it?

Thanks.
