The big focus rectangle is displayed when you have the AF illuminator set to Auto.

More specifically, it's displayed when AF Illumination is running and the camera focused on something but doesn't know what or where it was in the scene. Generally speaking, that is not a good thing.

My recommendation is to turn AF Illumination off.
