to me its simple

there is a "focus assist light"

when this light is on and you are shooting in low light you get a huge box indicating that something might be in focus - - and its slow - most likely because the additionally light actually drowns out contrast the AF system needs

when the light is off you get the normal focus indicator box and it focuses quickly and accurately

My "focus assist light" is off by default because it doesn't "assist"

not a big deal - just learn what works best and dont bitc# about what doesnt
