Interesting point about the AF-assist light. I don't recall ever knowingly making use of it. Unless I was doing a close-up portrait I'd generally be too far away for that light to have any effect, certainly that'd be the case when shooting dog photos. I try not to bother or disturb the dogs when I'm shooting rally indoors so I'm typically shooting at least twenty feet away. When they get close I stop shooting and if they look at me I look away as though I'm not interested in them.

I am thinking it was automatic for me.
