At least in a well lit room. All focus points work with my canon 135 f2 lens. It even tracks focus.

I'm sure my lenses with F4 max ( 16-35 and 24-105 ) will not fare as well

That's my experience as well - love that 135 f2.

I only have one Sigma Canon mount 15mm fisheye that has center point focus only. Which i figure is due to the extreme nature of a fisheye. Having the center point is all i really need with that lens.

More to the point - In really dark conditions - just get a slender penlight and use that for manually focusing the camera. I've used that a few times.

It did and does irritate me that Sony can't have an option to manually turn on the red light when needed and i have to use a 3.00 flashlight instead of the $3000 plus camera. The red light doesn't even work when Sony a-mount lenses are used on the camera with the LAEA3 adapter, also made by Sony.
