Does the R7/R3 subject tracking ON always default to whole area af?

First Scenario:

  • Servo
  • AF Area (any option, flexizone 1 for this example)
  • Subject tracking ON
  • Subject (animal)
  • Eye Detection (Enable)

Half pressing shutter, you get the corner white brackets around the entire screen, regardless what AF area I had chosen. Why doesn't the AF stay within the bounds of the AF area I had originally set (flexizone 1) and instead jumps to whole area?

Also, with these settings, eye detection is pretty amazing - seems to lock onto eye right away.

Second Scenario:

  • Servo
  • AF Area (any option, flexizone 1 for this example)
  • Subject tracking OFF
  • Subject (animal)
  • Eye Detection (Enable)

The only thing I change here is subject tracking to off. Everything stays the same. Now, AF area stays the same as I had originally chosen (flexizone 1).

Weirdly, eye detection, despite still being on, takes a huge it. It no longer locks on with ease, and the AF system jumps from one area to another all over within the flexizone, never really locking onto an eye. Is this normal? Why is this happening despite eye detection still being on?
