    The AF assist auto comes on with native lenses. Ones that communicate with the camera. Old legacy lenses have no electrical contacts with the camera, and cannot tell the camera when the MF ring is being turned. You have to assign MF Assist to one of the buttons, and engage it that way when working with legacy lenses.

    Which lenses have you tried?
