    I find the 7r2 is not at all happy to focus in a studio where the only light source is the modeling light from 3 bowens lights, I seem to also remember that there was a good reason not to use the built in focus light as it causes an issue of some sort, I think I saw this posted or in one of the Freidman books,

    As I have always shot under modeling lights before , I wondered is this just me or do I have to use the room lights to focus ,( I know ambient does not show up) but I like to work with shadows and move lights a lot to get effect I want , and turning lights on and off is a real pain
