That might not work in landscapes, but with such close-ups, where
focus problems are clearer visible.

I doubt that more light would help. I did get a focus confirm beep during my tests, and, as you can see, the AF doesn't get it right. I might try a similar test in bright sunlight. However, I'm not holding my breath that the results will be any better.

Like I said before, I have no problem focusing manually, especially on lens that have a red dot. I'm just happy that I'll be able to take some usable IR pictures with the 10D
