For Center focus area, I feel like the camera has more effort to find the focus in AF mode than DMF, noticing from the movement of the lense.

But for Muti focus area, DMF works very well, accurate and locks everytime (But we never know exactly where it will locks). If you turn focus ring, the magnifier function will zoom into the focused area, not the center of the screen.

On Aperature Mode, the magnifier function will zoom into the CENTER :-x, in Auto Mode it zooms into the focus area...

What are/were you thinking Sony..??!

I just tried. In A-priority mode, the focus magnification seems to go to where the focus box lights up. This is true if you're using Multi-focus (not sure how it chooses a particular box in this case) or flexi-spot with the focus point away from the centre...
