You should be able to turn it off in your camera menu. Check your owners manual.

Nothing in the flash manual...

Or the 5d2 manual...

My apologies, it is a Custom Function in the 580EX II manual. You could try searching through the 5D' Mk II's flash menu to see if the YN-565 has a similar option.

^^Thanks for that.

The option comes up in the settings, but it will not let you adjust it unfortunately.

Obviously an oversight on Yongnuo's part.

You sure it's a modeling light feature, or a focus assist?

Definitely a modelling light, I have switched off the focus assist which is quite brutal. :-)

Are these things brand specific? I've been using the YN-560 happily for a good amount of time and didn't have a problem when I switched over to Nikon, but now that TTL is involved, I'm not so sure if I can go out and pick one up without taking a close look.
