Happens on the 1DX too...
They didn't care tbh - it's not a problem apparently.
Not on my 1D X. One flash of the AF assist lamp, then the AF confirm beep happens immediately (and the focus is accurate). Does that in low light with a low contrast subject, does it in a pitch black room with the camera pointed at a blank white wall. Works with the center AF point selected, works with an edge AF point selected (only difference is the center point just projects a thin, vertical red strip whereas with an off-center point the full grid is projected). Same behavior, same fast AF lock with the assist lamp on both a 600EX-RT and a 430EX II.
Do you happen to have a 5D3 as well that you could test?
