The lens hood, it's the squareish kind, not the flower petal kind, seems to stick out over the 2 little dots that are apparently for auto focus. Seems to work like this. Anyone confirm or deny that this is bad, and maybe the petal design is superior?

This camera has 2 types of auto focus, regular optical thru lens and also ,faster instant focus using the 2 emitters, it will work fine if you block them,but you may lose some speed in focusing a changing subject. i have used it both ways with no problems.

if i didnt explain it properly someone else please chime in.
