Sadly not, we dont have face priority.

The only option is to use, 1 area focus with face detect enabled and position the box over the desired face. The sony smokes pana in this regards...

Would be very useful if we could have some kind of face priority, or if the camera would lock on the face in the center and than stick to it, so we could recompose.

Definitely. I love the S bodies but I do wonder sometimes if the photography functionality was designed by photographers. Similar with Aperture Priority. Not only can you not see the effects of aperture (this was fixed on the S5), but the dial that was mapped to shutter speed now does nothing and you're forced to go into menus or waste a function button to set minimum shutter speed...
