Got it

okay

I had my servo on in LV. Every time you focus with that on it jumps out of zoom.

But, after reading the manual more closely, I found if I set the LV setting to One Shot I can zoom and then focus using a button (shutter or a back focus button can be set) and it will not jump out of zoom until I take a shot.

This allows a quick AF in zoom and, if it is off a bit, the ability to switch to manual to fine tune.

Now how practical that is, IDK. But I learned a bit about how this works.

Also, in order to have touch screen focusing to work the shutter needs to be a choice for AF. You can also have a back button focus in addition to it but not instead of it.

Thanks for the input.
