I managed to light up the AF point/s on my A99II at all times !

This was an happy accidental discovery. I've often have problems finding my AF points especially in time pressured scenarios as the AF point is lit green only when I half press my shutter button.

Before this discovery, I've often relied on spot metering large so that it's easier for me to find the AF point or always pressed the joystick in the center so that the AF point is reset to be in the center.

I realised using AF Range Control helps lit up the chosen AF point in yellow. ALWAYS! Now I've set Custom Button 2 to be AF Range Control. Upon turning on the camera, I'd press C2 twice and I'm ready to go. At this point, I do not know how much more battery it'd consume but I'm so so so happy right now and I'm here to share my joy!
