the af assist beam is the first thing to turn off. and cover it with tape just in case it gets turned back on accidently.  it's like a searchlight on the receiving end.  if you can see, any modern dslr will focus.  at this time the nex and the olympus omd-e5 are at the top of the pile for small cameras.  for less money you could get a low end dslr from canon or nikon but you'd probably lose the use of those classic lenses you like so much.
