With the E3 Oly removed teh AF assist light and I'm wondering whether this was a good idea or not ? How is the lowlight AF'ing with the E3 and Ted specifically with the 35-100F2 ?

Cheers

The E-3 (like the other E cameras except E-1) uses the internal flash for focus assist. While the strobing can be annoying, considering the placement of the red focus assist beam on the E-1 (which can be blocked by your finger) the flash AF assist should be more effective.

Hi Harj

If you look down throughthe "Thoughts on your E3's.....comments requested" thread you'll see my messages with cactus photos with the E3 and the 35-100F2. Those were taken under very low light levels. The E3 doesn't seem to need a focus assist under "normal" very low-light levels.
