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

Maybe the camera is trying to guess where the subject will be moving in AI Servo Mode (since it is in a constant mode of measuring) so it adds a little more weight to the edges of the focus point where as in One Shot mode it measures from the center of the focus point? See what happens if you use a dark background.....

At the end of the day these meters are only providing the best reading they can and you must determine if the reading and results are correct for your purposes or not. I would certainly not send my camera back for a 2/3 stop difference between two different focusing modes.
