Auto focus in dimly lit locations.

It appears that the little green focus light can only work in full auto mode. Has anyone got it to work in other mode with the focus on auto?

Don't know what model you have but k-10 and k-x will work in any mode or at least all I have tried with the button half pushed.In dim light it will work better with the lens wide open.

It works in all modes on mine. Make sure you set your camera to AF-S (Auto Focus - Single). Light does not work on AF-C.
