So I am sitting here just enjoying my camera--I truely enjoy using it and have recently started to use it more hand held. The side RF that came on it has a functioning lamp for "use in low light" or so the manual says. I have been just slightly frustrated by the lack of contrast between the two images in the RF. Looks like new beam splitter glass is on order. Anyone ever try to remove the lamp and install a small laser pointer as a light source? I just envision two crisp dots sitting out there in space just waiting to be brought together by a spin of the focus knob. I think I'll give it try--anyone else fool around using the lamp for a focus aid?
