Then clearly your experience is limited and I am not sure why you would bother commenting. Just fills the forums with nonsense if someone feels the need to comment on the basis of 'limited experience'. Let someone answer who uses the camera regularly.

It works fine in low light. Set the camera to manual focus, and then use the rear button to prompt auto focus. You can then utilise peaking and onscreen magnification, and it works well. Struggles to some degree in very very low light, but then so does my 5D mk2, and my OM D
