Can a 5D4 lock focus on a subject when you recompose?

Auto Area Focus

Put your camera in the 61-point automatic selection AF and AI Servo mode, and it will do sort of what you want.

Personally, the 5D IV has great AF point selection across the frame, most with cross sensors.  It is best to use the proper AF point with your composition in mind. The only time I've relied on auto selection is for shooting diving, which it is nearly impossible to track a diving sequence when shooting tight.
