In reply to WilbaW, 8 months ago

I think the misunderstanding comes from the ambiguity of the term 'lock'. I think that WilbaW is using the term as it the focus 'locks on' to a subject and continues to vary focus to tracked the 'locked' subject; whereas Phhoenyxx is thinking of 'lock' as in the focus 'locks' at the current focal distance, and doesn't change even if the subject and/or camera moves.

Is there more proper terminology to distinguish between the two?
