As stated in my previous post on the AF35ML I dislike the fact, that the camera beeps when the light is low. So I tried to cut the beep off. After discovering the position of the signal-giving element I cut off the light brown wire from the solder. The beep is set off! The drive is still loud, but shooting low light is less annoying now.
A picture taken in low light; the 100% crop shows the performance of the lens wide open.
