Manual Focus Techniques

Hi Camera friends,

I was curious of what you all recommend in terms of focusing tips on manual lenses.  I recently wanted to dive deeper into understanding proper technique for manual lenses.  I usually just go out of focus, then go back into focus to make sure the area I want is in focus (with no real thought behind it).

With our APS-Cs (e-mounts), the lens magnifies - do you recommend focusing first on the area you want, then reframe?  For example if the photo is a portrait - focus on the eyes of the person first, then reframe to get the layout you want?

Also, does the flex-spot mode make any difference with full manual lenses?

Thank you!
