Thank you for the links to tutorials. I went thru some of them already - also vide ones. My concern is not that I do not know which mode to use when.

But rather why the camera showed af area in different spots that it actually focused? I could explain it with priority set on release and not on focus but that was not the case unless this setting can be overwritten by SCN presets...

I did not shoot those pictures and I am not sure which settings were selected. Probably some SCN presets.

Could it be that you have set the AF priority to release on focus or button press? I would think if set to shutter release, the camera "finds" a focus point in the viewfinder, but does not move the focus fast enough since Release Priority is set.

See the settings here:
