Been using A7C with 70-200 Sony lense for about a year now primarily for football and baseball action photos. I am struggling to get the setting back so that when in S mode, the green square boxes locks in and follows the subject so the focus is on the moving target. I have gone through the manual and many other places, cant seem to get this back set properly. Its stuck in center focus mode as set by the touch screen and im losing photos! Any guidance would be great.
