Is there a way to use the A7rIII?IV in hyperfocal MF mode and smash in face detection AF

with the use of a single button -

meaning override MF with the push of a button ?

That's my default configuration.

Manual exposure mode, manual focus, no AF on shutter

AF-On <button> = Custom Hold 1 = AF-C + AF On + AF Area: Tracking-FlexSpot-Small

AEL <button> = Custom Hold 2 = AF-C + AF On + AF Area: Tracking-Wide

So whenever I want to, I manually focus, including pre-focus

Whenever I want a small spot or wide AF, I mash the respective button.

This is addictive, and I couldn't go back to cameras that didn't make all of this possible.
