Ok, I am always shooting in low light situations for work. Large conference rooms, lowered lights for a PowerPoint presentation. And my Olympus dSLR uses contrast focusing, I think. Which means, if its dark it has to pulse the flash (much to the anger of my subjects who go blind) to get enough light and focus correctly. Id focus manually, but the focus screen is matte, Id have to buy and install a split image...not really my idea of fun. Ive used dSLRs that use infrared light to check distance and focus using that, much better in low light. But of course not useful in ALL situations, but its not even an option on my Olympus. Is there a reason I find FEW dSLRs that actually use infrared focusing anymore? Cant cameras have both!?
