I don't understand number 1. Why does it matter what mode you shoot in with any lens? Each lens is not designed for certain camera settings. This is really up to the user. I use Manual 100% of the time because I like full control of my settings. But last night I could not get the lighting I wanted and decided to give AV a try. They reason why I said AV makes the camera think its 2 hrs earlier is because the camera set every for me. It chose the right camera settings to shoot in which was perfect. I did adjust the shutter a little but left my fstop at 4 and my iso at 800. Remember I am shooting at 8-8:30 pm and the sun is way on the other side of the town and behind buildings.
I also hate on camera flash and my external still needs to be sent to Canon to be fixed. Daughter dropped it and it needs new bulbs. Every thing else on the flash works fine. Just wont flash.
As for continuous if you ever shoot any thing moving at a fast rate or even children for that matter you would know that continuous mode which is rapid fire and you holding you holding the shutter button down while your camera is click click clicking away. Out of the serious of images you just captured you will have several or one or two that are sharp and exactly what you want. This I don't use often only on fast moving toddlers and if my shutter is low and I am to lazy to get my tripod. Which my tripod was in the car with my husband off some where else and my knee makes a perfect steady foundation.
You say you don't understand my first question and yet it was you who said 'I shoot this in AV which I NEVER shoot in'. Therefore, my question ( Why would you use AV on this lens and not the others? ) is perfectly reasonable.
As for the other questions, AV doesn't fool the camera into thinking it's a couple of hours earlier - it simply adjusts the exposure the same way as does TV, M or P. I didn't understand the relevance of your comments about your broken flash.
Lastly, I don't need a lecture about what continuous shooting is. I am perfectly aware of what it is and what it does - and I have used it many times myself. My point was that continuous mode does not necessarily guarantee sharp results. For instance, if the shutter speed is too slow for the subject movement (or camera movement) it doesn't matter how many shots you take in burst mode, they will all be soft. My query was to the effect that to imply that 'continuous burst mode' ensures a sharp image is wrong.
In fact, the pictures you posted are not the sort for which you would use burst mode, a good camera technique being probably more likely to get you sharp results(eg the shutter speed was far too slow for the focal length used))
