I just noticed

Shooting in my studio tonight with my gripped K7 and my 50-135, it seems like the focus assist beam hits on the lens hood, I had some blurry shots with the hood on, took it off and every shot after that was tack sharp, anybody else ever notice this?

Never had my 50-135 with my K-7 long enough to realize that. But one thing I did realize a few days ago is that with or without the hood, the AF assist lamp hits my big fat 70-200's head. It cuts off where the lens is viewing, not very helpful for my Tamy's ability to focus at a close range.

To fix this you can just use a flash gun and set it to spot beam / focus assist mode and it will work the same way with it's red light without your lens interfering.

You really need a hood in the studio?

Whether it's inside or outside and natural or studio lighting, it's still the same. I always use my hood regardless of where I am.
