Sigma 30/1.4 DC DN how is the EyeAF?

This lens spec could fit well for shallow depth of field environmental portraits, so I'm thinking if it will complement my 24/1.8 and 50/1.8 when I need something wider than the 50 but with similarly shallow DOF. Only makes sense it it's usable at f1.4 and has accurate EyeAF otherwise I'll be better off with my 24/1.8 and a slight crop.

Surprisingly I couldn't find much written about EyeAF on the Sigma 30/1.4 DC DN.

How well is the EyeAF working on this lens, particularly in AF-C on A6300/A6500? As good as a native lens like 24/1.8 or 50/1.8?

On the 24/1.8 and 50/1.8 I get about 99% accuracy using EyeAF, (eg 1 slight misfocus out of 100) can I expect the same with the 30/1.4?

And finally, how bad are the chromatic aberrations at f1.4? I know the lens is sharp but for example I used to have the Zeiss 85/1.4 A-mount lens that had bad CA and hence I stopped down sometimes not for increased sharpness but for better CA control.
