Whilst we're on the subject of focusing and low-light, is there a way on the K100D to have the flash fire for AF-Assist, but then not actually fire to take the picture?
You might want to check out this thread. Short answer, cleanest way is to raise flash, acquire focus lock, then close flash before tripping shutter.

Some external flash units have a focus-assist beam and a mode in which only the focus-assist beam is activated, while the flash itself is deactivated.
