We've just got our C100 upgraded to the latest firmware with Dual Pixel AF, a technology that basically allows Auto focus for video. In this video, we performed the Auto Focus test with our 24-70 f2.8L lens which is our main workhorse for most of our shoots. We are pretty please with the response time even though it may not be the fastest in focusing.
One of the disadvantage to us is that it's not able to focus images that are off center thus this technology would not completely replace manual focusing where we might possibly want to focus on a different region. Nonetheless, this technology really makes life easier for run and gun shooters who might want to shoot in lower apertures (where focusing is extremely hard)
We might be posting the same test with other lenses soon!
We definitely recommend all C100 / C300 to consider this upgrade.
