Interesting at best, not really a problem per se.

Interesting at best, not really a problem per se ...

I mean, if you're consistently getting slightly darker exposures in AI servo, I am going to guess that's how the algorithm works. "Problem" or "bug" is when the camera is doing something it's not supposed to do.

You're the one assuming focus mode plays no effect on exposure. What's the basis of your assumption? You're a photographer not a Canon engineer.

I'm not dismissing your claims, it's just you're fretting over nothing. It's an interesting discovery, it really is, but I don't see how it's a problem if you're consistently getting the same results.

As others have suggested, it might have been changed in FW revision. Try updating or contacting Canon about it.

Don't know if my Camera does this, as I haven't had a reason to look for the problem yet, but I'll try it out and post my findings.

Good luck either way.
