Re: 80D AI Focus

I've never used AI focus.  It's the "mode in the middle" that I just skip.  Have you tried a smaller aperture, say f/4 or f/5.6 to see if focusing improves?  I use my 17-55 for similar shots and generally get better results shooting touch shutter in live view to put the focus where I want it.
