Sony user seeking advice on xt3

Hi all, thinking of switching for video since Sony refuse to offer the things I want, could I ask:

- how reliable is the eye-AF for relatively still subjects, talking head, ie in a 20min interview how often will it flip out of focus momentarily, and how long to regain focus?

- same question for face detect. With current Sony i would say it loses focus maybe once in 20min, for no more than 2 seconds, which is no problem.

- are people seeing enough difference between the 10 bit 4.2.0 internal and the 10 bit 4.2.2 external to make a ninja largely essential, or is it a small difference? Again for talking heads mainly, no green screen.

I shoot mainly talking heads, anything else i should know? Thanks!

(Sony's dismal apsc showings seem to confirm they have no plan to offer 10bit at apsc, nor are they even innovating at the pace they used to, and still not even a whisper of the 7siii - so i'm considering 2x XT3)

*Final Q, the 50-150mm, how is the manual focus on it, linear? Smooth, good for tracking?
