A6500: proper use of Lock on AF: Flexible Spot M

Recommended Posts

On my A6500, I have Continuous focus ON and the Focus area set to Lock on AF: Flexible Spot M. When I try to set focus, I get "dancing spots" rather than a small frame. The "dancing spots" are moving all around where I initially set the focus (pressed the button for focus).  Is that normal?

I do use Back Button Focus (BBF), which should not have a bearing on this.

Many thanks for some clarification.

The dancing focus points and the grey rectangles are not the same thing.


Dancing focus points: Lock-on AF: Expand flexible spot.

grey rectangles: Centre Lock-on AF


Confused? I am! After two years with an a6000, which has the latter. I recently got an a6500, which has added the former.  I am not at all sure which is intended for what, but I think that the Centre-lock-on rectangles are inted for people.  Could be wrong, probably am!
