AF settings - which ones do you use?

Dear colleagues, may I ask you to share your autofocus settings? I am especially interested in the recommendations of colleagues involved in shooting dynamic objects.
Basically, I would be grateful for any advice on the recommended settings and for other parameters - including ideas for customizing the camera.

well in that case it's all depends what are you shooting .
for example :
clear sky - flying bird - your lens is capable to reach the bird - you can use the full AF
same situation , but bird is flying and crossing the trees or bushes - i.m using zone AF or select AF area ( medium or small )
AF hold only use in panning mode in slow moving object . With D FA 150-450mm i have great success in AFC with spot and select spot with four point supporting center .
ALL settings in AF-C , Subject recognition ON . But more important it's a distance of your subject , what lens you are using . and how fast it's moving .
k3 III - doing great job for tracking the birds .
Удачи .....
