There will be times when you will be walking in lanes and climbing staircases where you cannot see what lies in front of you . Instead of carrying a separate  torch ,you could use your camera instead! The AF-assist lamp is a strong light that can ensure that you do not bump into things or trip over sleeping animals. Alternatively , you can fire your camera's flash gun.
