Just got my d50 today. I was noticing something weird about the af assist. Does it have some recharge time? I use it and after about 4 or 5 shots in the dark it just flashes quickly and wont stay on. But if i leave it for a little while to recharge or something, it works again. Is this normal?

thanks
Dan

The focus assist does not stay on permanately. It only stays on long enough to achieve focus. If focus can be achieved without the Af assist, it doesn't activate.l

no, i know that. I just meant after a few shots the af doesn't power up even in supre dark locations. But its alright i checked the faq's and it heats up and needs time to cool.
