Re: Can a 5D4 lock focus --- easily !

You can not use the optical viewfinder like EVF in Sony

Just use live view , choose servo focusing.

Then you just tap with your finger a subject that you want to be in focus. I use AF ON button and press it continuously. The chosen subject is kept in focus and you move your camera as  long as you like to get a good composition. You can even move backward or forward.

I must use reading glasses, but I can do this even without glasses as long I see what is the subject

I started SLR photography in 1968, first DSLR was Canon 40D in 2007. Now Fujifilm X-E3 is my favourite traveling camera - also NEW! 5DMkIV for landscapes, BIF/nature .
