You are asking for shutter release priority in AF-S. I believe the Z50 only has shutter release priority in AF-C mode. The workaround is to focus on the original point but continue to hold down the AE-L/AF-L when you recompose. The camera will remain focussed on the original point.

Yes, that is exactly what I meant. Sorry that I didn't make it clear in my original post.

That's a pretty unconvenient workaround to be honest because in some situations that means holding the AE-L/AF-L button for a looong time before taking the shot.
