5D3 with AF assist
« on: June 22, 2012, 09:20:14 PM »
I am shooting a wedding reception right now and for the fun of it I turned the AF assist off and the camera focuses a whole lot faster. AF assist is only necessary I guess when there is no light. Why doesn't AF assist slow down the AF?  Shouldn't it help it?
