    I notice that in certain low light conditions, my GH3 flashes a red light onto my subject (I guess to help its auto-focus). Is there any way to disable this? It spoils my surreptitiousness.

    Keep in mind in low light that light does work, assisting AF! The Olympus E-PL1 and 2 do not have one and they are all but impossible to AF in low light.
