AI Servo will always hunt...

AI Servo will always hunt a little bit on a static subject, and I've never had good results using AI servo unless the subject is moving. I always use 1 shot focus in these situations, and have my custom function setup to use the buttons around the ring of the lens to switch from AI servo to 1-shot, and back. Works like a charm...

I would test your lens using the 1-shot setting if the subject is static. If, however, your subject is moving, then AI servo is the way to go.
