Very nice set of shots 👍 I shoot with the same setup and am amazed at the detail you can get when you nail a shot.

I’m spoiled coming from the A9 but the AF on the A1 is pretty amazing. I use BBF and have Bird Eye AF enabled. If the birds eye is visible I usually don’t even need to focus (press the AF button) to get tack sharp results. That BE AF is also very sticky. Pretty cool 😎

I use shutter-release to activate AF.

Here's an example of BE AF catching the eye of a subject behind contrasty grass. In the past, I would have had to switch to a small single-point and then might lose focus when the bird went behind the grass again. With "Tracking" and Bird-eye, the AF stays locked on to the eye of the subject:
